I also use two great Mac software to demonstrate the power of the Mac in
Project Management - the original MacProject (which i started using way
back in 1986-87) on which others (as usual) have built their Project
Management software (rather poor copies and terribly buggy that usually
my students used to the PC throw out the programs and move over to the
Mac and this ancient program) and another superb one called HyperProject
(I only have the free demo version for my students to play around
with) which is based on the Hypercard software but is a Mac stand alone
Students love to play with these and develop great Project Management
schedules, etc. Totally interactive and pofessional but simple enough for
an absolute layman.
Let me know if you want any more info. I have to start working on next
years lectures so would be interested if you unearth any good and recent
references and resources not mentioned above. Do not bother to give me any
Microsoft related products or any that run on Windows as it is too much
hassle for my students as they are interested in Project Management and
not tinkering around to get a computer to work!
