  • Abstract      Wikis have the potential to change the way extension does business on many fronts. But first, extension agents and specialists need to understand the power, potential and limitations of wikis and how to use them.  e-Xtension is betting on it.  They’re building wiki like functionality into every application under development.  This session will show how to contribute to a wiki by creating and editing pages and how to teach others about wikis.  We'll also discuss how (and why) extension can use wikis, both our own and others like wikipedia, to pursue the mission of extension.
