TAG Education Collaborative Announces New Website

Atlanta, GA, August 25, 2010 --(PR.com)-- TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-ED) has announced the launch of their new website at http://www.tagedonline.org. The user-friendly site offers information about the organization’s operation, programs, events, as well as resource information and news.

“This site is an effort to provide TAG-ED with a platform to create more community awareness about the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and its role in the development of the next generation of innovation,” said John Hurlbut, Executive Director of TAG-ED. “We wanted a clean and navigable website that our stakeholders will find appealing and informative.”

Visitors to this site can read about the organization’s history and services, as well as the profile of each member of the TAG-ED Board of Directors.

The new tagedonline.org site was built by Glick Interactive to be a destination for visitors to learn about TAG-ED news as well as education news around the country while giving TAG-ED sponsors a way to advertise and promote messaging towards the TAG-ED constituency. "We built the TAG-ED site on the Drupal platform to give the TAG ED administrators the power of a content management system (CMS) to manage the site content, events, and sponsorships," stated Abhi Goel, President of Glick. The website is hosted at Colocube (www.colocube.com), a TAG-ED sponsor.

Formerly the TAG Foundation, the TAG Education Collaborative is a 501c3 non-profit organization which was formed by the Technology Association of Georgia in 1999. In 2009, the organization’s name was changed to the TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-ED) to facilitate a re-branding that would enable it to be a catalyst for Georgia’s K-12 education system to become a leader and innovator for STEM related education. TAG-ED’s efforts in this area are vital to the development of the talent that will be required to fill the growing demand for qualified staff for careers in information technology, science and engineering.

Glick Interactive as an Atlanta based, full-service web development and design firm with international offices in Moscow and New Delhi.
