As was mentioned in the tech session for iLife yesterday, the goal was to push the WOW factor of what iLife can do, while introducing what is possible with our new Macs on campus. There wasn’t much time for playing, so there will be follow-up training sessions in the upcoming weeks pertaining to using these applications. If you were unable to attend the iLife sessions, this would be a great time to become familiar with these powerfully creative tools!
In the meantime, if you wish to play around with iPhoto, iMovie, or GarageBand, simply boot up to the Mac side (as soon as you turn on the computer, hold down the “alt” button for 10 seconds), and you’ll see the these three applications in the ‘dock’ at the bottom of the screen.
And for those of you who feel daunted by the thought of using a Mac, or who would appreciate a refresh on navigating your way around a Mac, Brandon will be offering sessions and assistance for this as well.
As was also mentioned in the iLife session, approximately 35 video tutorials pertaining to iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand have been recorded and will be available on the server (the location has not yet been determined), OR you can drop by room 1086 anytime after school to copy them to your USB. These tutorials cover the basics of all three applications and are excellent resources for getting the feel for iLife.
If you have any Mac-related questions don’t hesitate to ask me (Brandon) or drop me an email: email@example.com.
