Good evening,

We are looking at a few different solutions for managing our iPads (district owned and personal devices).  Would you mind sharing what mobile management solution your district is using and your thoughts on this experience thus far.

I recently attended a workshop put on by the Long Island Apple Rep. for Educational Sales.  He and another Apple Engineer discussed how to set up Ipads for mass distribution using a Mac computer and a Ipad cart. It can basically "format" up to 30 Ipads at a time. By formatting, I referring to installing all of the apps you want at one time. This setup will also allow you to "push" apps out to the devices but that takes longer to ensure that every device is upgraded. 

One neat feature is that you can set up an Ipad so that the students or staff can then add their own apps via their own itunes account. When you need to take back the ipad or replace it, their apps are stored in their Itunes/Icloud and will download when they log in again.  You can also decided to "lock down" the Ipad so that nothing can be downloaded. 

My suggestion- contact Apple and have them arrange a demo.

Rob,

Thanks.  We had Apple in the other day and we talked in depth about Casper, Absolute and Mobile Iron.  All look like viable options. 

Hey Bill,

 

I am looking at a few solutions, but have not settled on one yet.  In the next week or two I will be viewing webinars hosted by: Air-Watch, Cisco and Zenprise.  I'll comment again once I have some good data to share.  Or, give me a ring at Wantagh.

 

Thanks

Don

Will do Don! Hope all is well.
