Are you writing technical software? Do you want to speed up your development process? Do you want to increase the performance of your applications? Are you dealing with large amounts of data or computationally intensive problems? Do you want to spend more of your time developing algorithms rather than implementing low-level functions?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us for this free half-day seminar and learn how you can use MATLAB to speed up and enhance your software development process.
LEAP has announced the following upcoming training courses to be held in Sydney:
ANSYS Workbench Simulation Introduction (including DesignModeler)
This introductory course covers the basics of both ANSYS DesignModeler and Workbench Simulation, with attendees performing static and modal analysis on CAD assemblies.
ANSYS Workbench Simulation Structural Non-Linearities
This advanced course covers all aspects of Structural Nonlinearities, including nonlinear contact definition, material plasticity, hyperelasticity, and provides users with the skills to perform non-linear analyses on complex CAD assemblies.
ANSYS CFX Introductory Training (including DesignModeler)
This introductory course covers the basics of CAD geometry creation for CFD, parametric modelling, CFD meshing techniques, setup and postprocessing of CFD simulations, CFX expression and command languages.
"My awards are lovely. I love to show them of." Doris Roberts
You may not be as showy as Doris Robert's of Everyone Love's Raymond fame, but, you may have done something really amazing using Adobe products to teach or teaching Adobe products to students. If you have, why don't you submit your work, lesson plan or student's work in the Adobe Educators' Choice Awards. Prizes include Mac computers, iPads and Creative Cloud subscriptions, oh and of course gloating like Doris Roberts! The competition closes on October 5th, and you can take a look at other people's entries for inspiration here.

I've been thinking, what are some really cool features of OneNote? A simple Google search came up with this hilarious video, which is today's segway into some super sized tips and tricks for OneNote 2010.
Using template to maximise your minutes...
As you would have seen in the video above, you can use templates to colour code your notes. If you use OneNote 2010 for taking minutes in a meeting, templates can become your greatest ally. When you add a new pageinside a section:
1. Click the drop down arrow next to New Page.
2. Select Page Templates.
3. The Templates - Add a page bar will open allowing you to try different templates
What's even better, is that it remembers your favourites, so that if you use a particular template regularly, it is only one click away!!
"When I'm in the field, when I'm working, I keep very careful notes. I wear big shirts with big breast pockets, and I carry in them two little spiral notebooks. " Peter Matthiessen
Like Peter Matthiessen, I love taking notes! But, unlike Peter Matthiessen, I use Microsoft OneNote, instead of a big ol' notepad. I love OneNote because of its integration with other Office products, SharePoint and Internet Explorer. Check out this video below, and let us know if you would like some more tips and tricks for OneNote.
Not everyone has access to the Adobe Master Collection across campus, but that doesn't mean to can't edit videos! With CS6 you can now edit videos within Photoshop. Amazing! Check out this video below.
Recently Adobe visited the University to showcase their new Creative Suite 6. As a follow up they have developed a White Paper discussing education and technology. Here's what they have to say about it:
The practical need for incorporation of digital literacy into a modern curriculum, along with practical advice and demonstrations are an absolute need in education, today. As educators and heads of institutions it is imperative that you transform your institution to meet the challenges and reap the benefits of the digital age.
We recently, spoke to many of your peers and developed a whitepaper which aggregates their thoughts. This whitepaper explores the use of technology in modern education and the essential role that it plays in equipping students with the skills they require both within their careers and overall society. Hope you find this to be a valuable read.
If you're interested in reading more, you can download the paper here.
