Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Carla Rapp. I am the Media Commons campus consultant for all of the eastern campuses at Penn State including, Worthington-Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton, Schuylkill, Lehigh Valley, Berks, Great Valley, Abington, Brandywine and York. I travel to these campuses often and work with faculty on creating multimedia projects to implement in their classes. Then I work with the students in those classes, helping to train them on creating a multimedia project. I also hold workshops for faculty and staff to discuss new ways to use technology in education.

On a personal note, I am an avid cook and baker. I am constantly on cooking websites and pinterest looking for new things to make! I am always looking at new apps for cooking and baking.

What equipment do you use?

For my work I use a combination of a MacBook Pro, and iPad Air 2, and an iPhone 6S. The fact that all my devices sync content helps me tremendously in my job. Being able to update emails and calendars from anywhere at anytime is a major asset.

What apps are your favorite?

I constantly use iMovie, GarageBand, Gmail, Google Docs and Calendar. I use some of these for work, others for personal use. Google Docs is a major player in my everyday: I use the application to keep lists, agendas, ideas for upcoming events, personal school work, recipes and various inter-office communications.
