Macworld Expo to feature new training programs

IDG World Expo on Wednesday announced that January's Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco, Calif. will feature new training and educational programs for conference attendees.

New conference features for the show include "A Day at the Office: Microsoft Office 2008," a User Conference session dedicated to the new version of Microsoft Office for Mac that will debut at the show. "Digital Photography Safari" gives users a chance to advance digital photography skills and use their equipment in real-world photo shoot situations.

The "Macworld Educator Academy Conference" is focused specifically on providing skills to K-12 educators who use Macs in their classroom; the educators providing the conference will demonstrate how they're using technology to engage students and advance learning.

New Power Tools sessions scheduled for Macworld Exo include two-day courses on Apple Aperture, Adobe Lightroom and Flash, teleworking and Mac OS X v10.5 Server. And Hands On MacLabs now feature 18 sessions, including sessions on iLife '08 and iWork '08 applications. New content has also been added to the MacIT track as well.

IDG World Expo also notes two new User Conference tracks: Click, which focuses on digital photography, and Leopard, which gives users the ins and outs of Mac OS X v10.5.

IDG World Expo and Mac Publishing are both owned by International Data Group (IDG).
