Drone Class: Keeping Coursework Current as Technology Advances
Hanssen, Sarah
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v40 n10 p871-874 2016
Today's students prioritize employment; they want to be sure that there will be work for them upon graduation. Film and media students, in particular, need a long list of computer software and film equipment skills on their resumes, especially newer technologies that professionals in the workforce have not yet mastered. Consider, in this regard, the development of aerial photography, a staple of conventional filming. Just as students can elect to specialize in camera technology or motion graphics, they may soon choose to hone their drone operator skills. Colleges with an emphasis on ensuring viable employment for graduates would be wise to offer drone training for all types of students, from engineering and robotics, to agriculture and aid work. They need to choose the training that will truly best serve their students.
