Washington, NJ (PRWEB) November 27, 2009

New Jersey web development firm, Business Edge Services and Technologies, Inc. recently teamed up with Nurd Inc., a graphic design company from Bethlehem, PA, to complete a project lead by Citizendium Editor-in-Chief and Wikipedia Co-founder Larry Sanger.     This project resulted in WatchKnow.org, an exciting new Web 2.0 website focused upon collecting and organizing educational videos for kids.    

WatchKnow.org makes educational videos for kids ridiculously easy to find. The website launched with over 10,000 videos and over 2,000 categories, arranged in a very user-friendly directory, which allows for dragging and dropping – an evolutionary step in Web 2.0 design. The site continues with the wiki concept of contributors working together, editing video and category information. WatchKnow.org is easy to get involved with (even anonymously) and the project engages teachers to act as community moderators. It is non-profit and generously supported by an anonymous donor through the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi.

“We were honored to have the opportunity to work closely with Mr. Sanger. His vision combined with the expertise of Nurd Inc’s Jason Pijut for the graphic design, helped our developers bring WatchKnow to life” said Brandon Spilove, owner and senior developer at Business Edge.

“We were able to create innovative functionality, including the very practical drag and drop directory features, which will bring WatchKnow.org to the next level of Web 2.0 design” commented Bill Pittenger, Business Edge Project Manager.
