From time to time we hear great feedback from the public and university colleagues on how eXtension has worked well for them. Kathy Flanders of Auburn University and a leader of eXtension’s Imported Fire Ants Community of Practice recently shared this:
Just wanted to let you know a little tidbit about our eXtension fire ant website. I teach an environmental biology course for a local community college and I assigned a short essay on phorid flies. I found it interesting that nearly every single one of my 30 students use eXtension as a resource! Looks like we have good “Google juice”, because I’m sure they just Googled the subject and clicked on the first thing they saw. I was also happy to see that their comments were actually science based and not from “schmo joe’s” blog.
Thought you might like to know that!
