Expert Village is a user-generated instructional video site. Expert Village has over 50,000 how-to videos through its platform that connects freelance filmmakers and videographers with specific production assignments.

In essence, Expert Village operates by presenting "assignments" for experts; these are based on topics that are the most searched for on the web. After the experts create a how-to video, Expert Village purchases the rights from the video's creators. The diversity of instructional videos is quite evident as soon as you enter the site. How-to videos range from eyebrow-waxing, checking automobile batteries for corrosion, to baking traditional Challah bread for example.

In June 2007, Expert Village was acquired by Demand Media.
