Master the MacBook Pro!

As you all know, this fall marks the debut of the Park School's new laptop program, and all of our first-year students will arrive on campus this weekend with a MacBook Pro in tow.

That's pretty exciting, if you think about how much that will impact the way we do things around here. Park is now wireless, and one-quarter of our students will have the same powerful multimedia tools -- across all kinds of media types: audio, video, Web, text....

We're providing lots of support for the program, including a full-time Help Desk. And we're offering three different kinds of instruction for first-year students in the program:

1. There will be two sessions presented by Apple reps that introduce the MacBook Pro and its programs to all first-year students.
2. There will be workshops offered through ITS focusing on specific applications -- Garage Band, iMovies, etc.
3. There will be a one-credit course offered by Professor Ari Kissiloff, "Introduction to MacIntosh" offered Thursdays from 12:15 to 1:05 p.m. in Park 285. You can register for the course online. (If you need more information, you can contact Professor Kissiloff at akissiloff@ithaca.edu, or talk to the associate dean, Virginia Mansfield Richardson, in the dean's office.)
