Students Gain In-Depth Training at MacWorld 2011

  • February 01, 2011

Olivet University students from the IT and Design colleges attended this year's Macworld Expo in pursuit of the latest applications, products, and technology.  Participating in the event's various workshops, students had a number of sessions to choose from.  Industry professionals led the way in demonstrating new software and tools for Actionscipt programming, motion sensor, photography, film editing, and the updated Mac iOS.

Approximately 25,000 attendees participated in the event with over 250 exhibitors and 100 new innovations.  The educational sections offered training opportunities and interaction with developers.  Programs such as Featured Artists showcased not just IT developers, but artists who utilize Apple technology and push the boundaries of creativity. 

Embracing Apple technology, design facilities in Olivet provide a connecting point for students and the annual MacWorld event.  Workshops offered through the University also examined ways for students to explore opportunities in Apple technology and integrating it into missions. 

The Olivet College of Journalism’s current exploration of video reporting benefited from the MacWorld seminars that demonstrated video editing and photography.  Working across different platforms from social media sites and the iPhone, the technology allows instant access for all mediums from a simple blog entry to videos.  Through the event's offerings, students walked away with new inspiration across all fields.
