iLife '06 for Educators
Thursday, March 30, 2006

Education 2277 (Distinguished Alumni Room) and the Cyberport (demo computers)
The Instructional Consulting staff, along with a colleague from the Teaching & Learning Technologies Center, are pleased to provide a presentation and related hands-on lab session on the use of iLife '06, a suite of multimedia applications for the Macintosh. You are invited!
Apple's iLife '06 suite of multimedia applications (iPhoto, iTunes, iMovie, Garageband, iDVD and the new iWeb), which was released in January, gives instructors capabilities that in the past were the province of highly skilled developers. The possibilities of using audio, still images, and video in your teaching and research are almost limitless, and the careful design of this integrated package ensures a short learning curve.
Many of you may have attended past iLife workshops. We encourage you to consider attending this one, because the new version of iLife incorporates iWeb, a brand new program for web development (including blogging), and substantial changes, particularly to Garageband (new podcasting features), iPhoto (new editing and photocasting features), and iMovie (new use of themes).
During this presentation, we will present some possible applications of iLife '06 to postsecondary education, and describe how multimedia can be used to enhance classroom and online teaching. You will get your chance to experience the iLife '06 software before and after the session, in the Cyberport just down the hall.
Presented by Chris Essex, Jingli Cheng, Jung Won Hur, and Karen Hallett, all from the Instructional Consulting office, and Mark Millard, from the Teaching and Learning Technologies Centers.
