Mobile Media Production and Learn-to-Code Kits
Fully funded, this proposal will enable the library to purchase another twenty iPad Pro devices, accessories, and software to make available to students as mobile audio and video production workstations, along with Apple’s “Everyone Can Create” and “Everyone Can Code” curricula, for learning digital creative skills and iOS and macOS app development using Apple’s new Swift programming language.
Multimedia Production Workstations
Fully-funded, this proposal will enable the library to purchase six multimedia production workstations (three Macs, three PCs) and equip them with a mix of Adobe Creative Cloud, Avid ProTools, Logic Pro, Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Autodesk Production Suite (3dsMax, Maya, etc.).
iOS/macOS App Development Workstations
Partially-funded, this joint proposal with Computer Services, will fund the purchase of three iMac worstations, to be located the Computer Services Open Access Computer Lab in Meyer Library 105. These systems will be managed by LIT, in cooperation with Computer Services, and configured to provide access to Apple’s XCode IDE and app development workflows as part of our broader efforts to provide access to the Everyone Can Code curriculum.
More to Come…
Over the coming 12-18 months, the University Libraries also plans to take advantage of these exciting new resources to offer dynamic event programming (e.g., 24/48-hour film festival/competition(s) and hackathons), and to begin offering training and badging opportunities in multimedia production, iOS and Mac app development, and the Apple Teacher program, and that’s just the beginning! We’d love to hear your ideas of how we can leverage these new resources to better serve the student community, and help provide our students with the in-demand skills and experience employers are looking for.
