IPR Students Learn Firsthand at SXSW

As the original “distance learning” class, IPR’s South by Southwest course sent 12 students to Austin, Texas, this year to participate in one of the largest music and movie conferences in the world. Close to 50,000 people attend the famous 10-day festival for its performances, which included Lady GagaColdplayLudacris and Chance the Rapper this year, but also for its educational panels on topics such as net neutrality, multi-platform marketing, fair use and copyright, indie music, movie production and hundreds more.

The South by Southwest Media Conference class is offered once a year at IPR and is clearly a student favorite—each year there is a long wait list of students hoping to register for this two-week intensive course. Through panel discussions and seminars, students learn about current media topics, networking, event management and promotion.

Of course, in addition to learning, students also rocked out at a bunch of great shows. And others who did not go are already planning on trying to register for the 2015 class!
