The Lethbridge College Multimedia Production program is a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. All students in this program are required to have at least a fourth generation Apple iPad (featuring the HD camera) and an iTunes account for their studies. The iPad will serve as the primary development platform for interactive mobile applications. It will be used for blended learning materials as well as acquiring photos, audio and video for use in courses. In addition, students may wish to use the iPad to replace physical textbooks with the corresponding e-reader versions. A laptop is NOT required as students will have access to lab computers loaded with the necessary curricular software. For more information, contact the Program Chair at 403.320.3202 ext. 5362.
Applicants who lack the required academic admission requirements can apply to the College and University Preparatory Program to upgrade for your program.
