Most of the courses offered through this eXtension catalog are delivered through eXtension’s online course system at http://campus.extension.org. Campus was originally launched in 2007, and currently offers some 360 courses of varying subject matter, rigor, cost, and credit. The subjects they represent reflect the breadth of the Cooperative Extension System, as Extension educators from about 40 different Land Grant Universities and involved in various agricultural, family, community, and youth programs offer online education through this site.
In addition, these Extension educators are finding new ways to deliver education to their respective audiences. A very popular technology is webconferencing, or webinars. Webinars listed on this Catalog site are those where the presenters have chosen to enhance their educational offerings through providing additional resources, opportunities for continued conversation, testing, certification, or other extended learning activities. Some of these webinars may require fees for admission, and this Catalog site facilitates payment of those fees and enrollment in those webinars. A full list of webinars is available at http://learn.extension.org.
In most cases, purchasing or registering for an educational offering through our Catalog will direct you to a page or course on Campus.extension.org. So do not be surprised if the link provided for your registration takes you to a page on Campus. If you are enrolling in a course, that page will your personal dashboard, where you will find a complete list of courses in which you are enrolled at that site. If you are registering for a webinar or workshop, that page will provide the rest of the information about that event; how to connect, what resources are available, how to communicate with the presenters, any testing or certification that may be offered, etc. And, if you have purchased an e-book, it will provide the download or the instructions for how to download it.
