BigEdHouse was developed to solve two problems for two sets of people. Before BEH, the only way for schools to find experts was to go to conferences and attend their presentations or by word-of-mouth from colleagues. It was quite difficult to locate someone with specific expertise (think Early Childhood Behavior Specialist, Google Apps Script Writing, etc.) For experts, the only way to find the schools who needed them was to try to meet representatives from those schools at conferences or to wait for them to hear about them via word-of-mouth, neither of which was very efficient. BEH strives to help schools find the experts they need and help experts find the schools who need them.
