Lunch & Learn: iPad Apps Basics and Beyond

JIBC’s Lunch and Learn Session on iPad apps – held on Tuesday, November 15 at the New Westminster campus − was a great session facilitated by the technology visionary, innovator & entrepreneur, Kevin Kovalycsik, who is currently the Department Head for the Bachelor of Hospitality Management Program at VCC.

Frothy eight participants consisting of JIBC staff, faculty and students gathered in the theatre at lunchtime. In addition, some viewers tuned in via the live webcast and watched the presentation online.

Since the session was only an hour, Kevin didn’t get the chance to spend too much time on each app, but he generously offered to come back and delve deeper into the world of apps if this is of more interest.
