UACES Facebook How to use Monsido

What is Monsido?

Monsido is a third-party software solution to help monitor the Extension web site for several different items.  The software can provide information on analytics (page views, visitors and traffic sources); quality assurance (broken links, misspellings) and accessibility (the ease with which a visually impaired person can access our site).  All of these components work together to ensure that Cooperative Extension is providing the best information in a quality format to the users of our website.
