An Assessment of County Extension Agents' Adoption of eXtension
Are county agents using eXtension? The purpose of the descriptive study reported here was to determine if agents: (a) had heard of eXtension, (b) understood its purpose and functions, (c) had an opinion about eXtension, (d) had decided if they would use eXtension, (e) were currently using eXtension, and (f) had made a decision about using eXtension in the future. Data were collected from a random sample of Texas Cooperative Extension agents. The majority of respondents had little to no knowledge of eXtension. If eXtension is to gain popularity with agents, more effort must be put into encouraging its adoption.
