Bring hither the iPads!
I got to play Santa and Scrooge today:
- Santa, because I got to distribute iPads to the Creative Communications advertising majors, thanks to Red River College's awesome Program Innovation Fund.
- Scrooge, because I also gave out an assignment to go with it. I guess you gotta take the good with the bad, though, eh?
This semester, the ad majors will conceive of and write the e-book in teams of two, incorporating ads for its client this semester, Berns and Black Salon. Next semester, the Graphic Design students will design and publish the e-book using CS5.
Then maybe we'll have a fancy schmancy launch party. Errr...your invitation is in the snail mail.
I love you, PIF
I applied for the PIF grant last summer after I found out it existed to do the very things that I exist to do: to support technological innovation and continuous improvements in academic programming at RRC.
I also figured that it wouldn't hurt to show the world that RRC, Creative Communications, and Graphic Design aren't interested in spinning their wheels in the bygone days of the communications biz, but continue to "Keep reaching for the stars!"
Next year? I've got an awesome idea...stay tuned!
