CDIS offers students Apple Titanium laptop computers
In an effort to attract students to its hybrid on/off campus learning programs, the Center for Digital Imaging and Sound, BC, is offering students the use of Apple’s coveted G4 Titanium laptop computers. Use of the portable machines, bundled with Alias Wavefront’s Maya animation package, is available for a slightly higher tuition fee, though school officials are touting savings on travel to and from class as a result of going mobile. "Our laptop program simply removes the need for that study group to always meet on campus. The actual training and education still take place at CDIS. Our students are used to around-the-clock access to high-end tools, but nothing is like having your own tools in your own space and the flexibility to work anytime, anywhere," says CDIS president/CEO Niels Hartvig-Nielsen in a media release. For a "small additional fee," students may keep the powerhouse machines.
