Welcome to the first issue of the on-line La Trobe University Bulletin. 

The new e-magazine, says Vice-Chancellor Paul Johnson, will continue to provide readers with an overview of University life, featuring major news about research, people and events.

‘The stories will be augmented by links to many of the University’s successful “new media” features, such as videos, podcasts, opinion pieces, and iTunes U,’ he says.

‘Make use of these if you want to go a bit deeper into what La Trobe offers you and your community.’ 

Professor Johnson says the University decided to move to an electronic version of the Bulletin to widen its readership, include access to new media and achieve more timely publication.

‘You can also let us know what you think, through the new feed back sections that are a part of the e-magazine,’ he says.

And the Apple iPad winner is …

In the December issue, readers were offered the chance to win an Apple iPad to mark the transition of the magazine to its new on-line incarnation.

‘I’m pleased to announce,’ says Professor Johnson, ‘that the winner of the inaugural “e-reader” contest is Chris Kynoch, Careers Practitioner at Waverley Christian College in Wantirna.’
