Alumni finance Apple workstations for WHU Campus Vallendar

State-of-the-art facilities for designing content for courses, competitions, and events

Students at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management can look forward to two new Apple workstations with a myriad of new application possibilities. In order to be able to use them, a "Creative Corner" will be set up on the 2nd floor of the In Praxi Learning Center (IP-C). The acquisition of the two new workstations was financially supported by WHU alumni Philipp Burgtorf (D 1993) and Robert Maier (D 2005). They were impressed by the digital leap forward WHU had made during the pandemic, for example by setting up the so-called One Button Studio, which enables hybrid, interactive teaching at a high level and is very easy for lecturers to use. "Students," says Klaudia Wilde of the WHU Foundation, "should now also be given the opportunity to be creative and to exploit the full potential of digitized lecture halls and workspaces. It's great to see how quickly alumni could be motivated to support this project."

The workstations are equipped with powerful iMacs and Adobe Cloud packages. Above all, they enable extensive video editing and the design of creative elements for courses, competitions, and events.

The new workspaces will be located in IP-C-E2. Staff, doctoral students, and students who have access to this room can log in at one of the workstations with their WHU login data and start a new project. WHU and In Praxi thank Philipp Burgtorf and Robert Maier for their support and look forward to seeing students' creativity come to life through the use of the new equipment.
