VideoJug offers expert advice

VideoJug offers expert advice A new site called VideoJug is determined to become the expert version of YouTube -- a place where you can find how-to videos from various experts for everything from etiquette to eBay to earthquake survival.
Most of the videos on VideoJug are professionally produced by the site. Others are submitted by users, but still vetted by VideoJug staff.

Like any other aspect of the web, video can be used for educational purposes. But such use is dependent on the veracity of the information available.

Just like traditional text based sites need to have some kind of fact checking to make sure their information is sound, video sites claiming to have educational or factual content need to make sure viewers aren't being mislead.

VideoJug's approach seems to be a good solution for this, although their fact checking process doesn't seem to be detailed anywhere on the site.

If they post a video that has step by step instructions for how to tie a tie, this will be a step in the right direction.
