A major update to Ask an Expert was released on Monday, December 3. This new version extends the reach of our research-based answers making them a learning tool for a larger number of people. (New enhancements are in last month’s article, “Ask an Expert Coming December 3”.)
We know with change comes questions, and we’re here to help with your transition to the new system. Experts who go to ask.extension.org to answer a question or wrangle questions can find help by clicking the Help link at the top right. The help page includes a variety of options for assistance; you may ask a question using the question form, or use a link to join AaE Office Hours in a Google+ Hangout, Adobe Connect room, or in chat.
We thank the more than 100 people who assisted us with testing the new application during the last month. We very much appreciated everyone’s feedback, and are very excited that the new application is now available to the public. We believe it has great potential to increase the reach and impact of the Cooperative Extension System and look forward to many Extension faculty and educators diving in to respond with research-based answers to the public’s questions.
