I've never been in a mechanic's learning environment/classroom, but have taught Biology for 3 years and a lab tech for 3 years at Indiana University. We used carts. In my brother's garage, where I do most of my wrenching, we have quite a few carts and are working on quite a few projects at the same time and the carts keep everything seperate and organized... (Not 10 projects, but a 78 BKO 460 build, BKO II 22R Turbo build, rock crawler 472 30over build, S10 350 build, 89 351w build, Bayou build, and a go cart build. Kinda hard to keep the stuff seperated without the carts.)
I guess space for a bunch of carts would definately be a factor. Also, budget, there are quite a few nice work space carts on the market such as the SnapOn ones. All of ours were bought at different industrial auctions over the years and either used as is, or modified to fit our needs.
