Project Gallery


Provides a framework for posting individual course content and other materials on the web as MIT's primary course management system. Faculty can easily manage content and control access; students can initiate and join discussions and search the entire course site.

STEFS (Software Tools for Environmental Study)

Streamlines data collection and improves data accuracy in environmental field studies via an electronic field-notebook application that integrates data collection, storage, interpretation and remote display. MIT students used it to test river water in Australia.


Provides infrastructure for a creative learning community that produces and accumulates architectural designs, images, course curricula, and research papers. The core of the system is an open-ended collection of digital images, workspaces, exhibition spaces and communication capabilities.

Teaching Computation in Studio: Course 1.00

Supplies hands-on reinforcement of the traditional focus on algorithms and data structures. Students work in small groups to develop software in Java on laptops; they program and debug, demonstrate problems and brainstorm solutions in class.

TEAL (Technology-Enabled Active Learning)

Combines lecture, recitation, and hands-on laboratory experiments into one classroom experience for introductory physics. Animations and simulations are incorporated into course materials, students are grouped in small clusters; the professor interacts with each person.


Records and replays physical motion for innovative hands-on experimentation with computationally enhanced physical objects. With it children can use their sensorimotor skills to develop intuitions about kinematics, systems concepts and the natural world.

Visualizing Cultures

Supplies a large database of visual images of Japan from 1853 to the present, transforming undergraduate history education from the predominantly text-based approach to one that integrates historically significant images and commentary in a systematic manner.

Wireless Portable Computing in the Design Studio

Explores the relationship of mobile computing to patterns of space use in a university setting, by documenting wireless and mobile computing in the Department of Architecture, determining the associated educational benefits, and publishing the results.
