Disabled American Veterans

Conceived as a way to extend thank-yous to veterans beyond the typical "thank you for your service", the DAV Thank A Vet app guides users through a series of questions and uploading photos to thank a veteran in their life with a customized video. During a three week period around Veterans' Day, the app had over 2,000 videos created, which collectively had over 25,000 shares.

What Is Chameleon

Chameleon allows companies to reach and train their employees anywhere. Coca-Cola uses it to train corporate-level employees who travel annually around the world visiting bottling and distribution facilities. Coach applies it to new employees at orientation, to introduce them to the brand and then through their career to (for example) a master level leather craftsperson. Chameleon uses a responsive (desktop/tablet) and adaptive (mobile) framework with customizable pages and interactions to engage and assess the employee's knowledge. Clients can update text, media, pages with a cloud-based course editor. It's hosted on Amazon's S3 server, so global access is seamless.
