This following is a VERY specific way of using Events, but it works great in my class. (Sorry if something similar has been posted, but I didn't read every single post).

I teach basic video production for high school students, and we use the Library to specify the student, and the event to specify the video project we're working on. So, they may have 10 to 20 projects (depending on school schedules) and the students don't have to create a new Library every time they are assigned a project. Not to mention, as they progress through the program, they have the option of keeping the entire Library through out their 3 year progression (sophomore through senior), or just specific Events (assigned projects).

To be even more specific, it's a great tool for students to be able to open one item and it display their development over a time period.

I enjoy having Events in this circumstance, but I've dealt first hand with instances in which each job should simply be a new Library and no need for individual Events.

Options are always nice, Apple!
