Abstract: Incorporating a significant amount of technology into a classroom is an
important, but extremely difficult task. In this paper we describe the next generation of
the UCSB digital classroom, called the Collaborative Technologies Lab (CTL). The
primary goal of the CTL is to investigate the challenges of deploying technology for
technology's sake. We feel that without the ability to deploy a large amount of
technology and offer robust functionality, the whole idea of enhanced learning
environments becomes marginalized. Therefore, it is critical to understand the challenges
of deeply embedding technology in a classroom. Based on experience in building and
using the CTL, in this paper we propose a demarcation point between program
production and content encoding. This demarcation point offers the advantage of
breaking a large technical problem into smaller, easier-to-solve problems. The
