Different students have different learning styles; some prefer hands-on experiments, and others like to have material explained to them. Traditional engineering education is most effective for students whose learning preferences match the curriculum.

The COLLAGE project is developing and evaluating technologies to allow the Web to supplement traditional courses and labs by presenting information in a form tailored to student learning preferences. These include peer editing software for document markup and educational applets for teaching properties of materials.
