Abstract (100 words): Data gathered on courses to exploit the individual laptop environment for students in the UAE navy college showed high satisfaction with this approach. Training for teachers in the tools and rationale used was organized in a blended environment with 20 steps to be completed emulating the way classes had been conducted at the navy college. As they completed each step, trainees tracked their progress in a shared GoogleDoc while a wiki gave links to what the teachers accomplished as they tackled their 20 tasks. The presentation concludes with teacher reaction to the blended environment used for their training.
