Karl D.D. Willis How can projected imagery traverse the digital-physical divide to interact with physical objects and surfaces in the environment?

Your collaboration strategy is not just a matter of signing up for an online service, such as Box or Yammer, or even deploying a software platform, like SharePoint, no matter how comprehensive the feature set seems. Document collaboration is not the same thing as social collaboration, though both may be part of your overall organizational list of requirements.

The field of instructional design is a rapidly changing field that has quickly evolved from static filmstrips to interactive, media-rich simulations. Wikipedia provides an excellent timeline on the history of instructional design as well as instructional design trends and evolution: "Much of the foundation of the field of instructional design was laid in World War II, when the U.S. military faced the need to rapidly train large numbers of people to perform complex technical tasks, from field-stripping a carbine to navigating across the ocean to building a bomber —see "Training Within Industry (TWI)".
