Apple's Project LaunchBox

Apple in conjunction with Full Sail media college is set to announce "Project LaunchBox" this Friday. The new project is designed to put Apple hardware and professional software directly into the hands of more than 4,000 students across six different disciplines of study. Students will receive a MacBook Pro laptop loaded with software specifically geared toward their degree, and will receive instruction that combines 50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on activities that enable students to learn as well as practice immediately as they are trained for the industry. Apple's vice president of worldwide Education will kick off the event with 100 Full Sail students in a starting class, celebrating with political officials as well as business leaders and Full Sail president Garry Jones.

    Thats Interesting

    I am currently enrolled in Full Sail and they have been giving out launch box systems for the past 2 months. I guess this is the official announcement.

    Great collaboration!

    I am an Apple consultant here in central Florida working in the Orlando area and this looks to be another excellent move by Full Sail. As anyone who has ever visited their campus can attest, this is a first-class operation with incredibly professional facilities. I think this program will be a fantastic benefit to the students involved.

    sounds not so good

    OK, it actually sounds like a stupid idea:


    -1.) they're using macs, that gonna be a problem,

    -2.) They aren't using the pro software they'll be using in the workplace.

    Therefore after they graduate they can only answer the question of experience with a
    "no"
    Or perhaps a no, but I know how to buy a mac over and over to replace the one that broke.
