There is a way for Wyoming residents -- or anyone -- to get answers quickly and easily from University of Wyoming Extension experts and be linked to a national database of experts and information.
Extension’s Ask an Expert tool is integrated into its own web page, and the number of available experts to address the questions in Wyoming continues to expand.
“We’re trying to streamline our approach to get answers back sooner,” says Stan Skrabut, an instructional technology educational specialist.
Ask an Expert is available at http://bit.ly/UWaskanexpert.
A form on the web page allows people to title and type their questions, enter their locations, upload images and enter their email addresses. They also can click a box to make their questions public, or their questions will remain private if they do not click the box. Then, users simply click the “Ask” button.
UW Extension has experts in areas including energy, family and health, community development, food and agriculture, programs for young people and gardening.
