New Mac Lab and Apple regional training center opened their doors at ACMT on Friday, August 28, 2009. The crown of more than 100,000 Euros worth investments in building improvements for the academic year of 2009/2010 officially started with operation after a dedication ceremony which hosted many representatives of Dubrovnik’s academic and IT community.
Dean Hudspeth started the ceremony by highlighting the importance of cooperation with Apple in Croatia and the establishing of regional training center to serve the local community. Major of Dubrovnik, Andro Vlahusic used this opportunity to express satisfaction with the cooperation city has with ACMT, while head of the Dubrovnik Neretva County, Nikola Dobroslavic, thanked the College for continuous positive influences in the community. Drago Gajski, director of Apcom, Apple representative in Croatia, praised ACMT’s decision to accredit the Mac Lab as a regional training center instead of simple computer purchase.
Zeljko Milic, Apcom’s academic affairs manager presented capabilities of Mac computers, especially in the field of multimedia development and interactive learning. The presentation was enriched with an example of podcasting which will probably become the future of communication between multiple participants.
With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
