- Installing email on 30 iPads is tedious. I was only able to keep my sanity by quickly memorizing the username and password for the single email account and the entire process didn't take all that long.
- With only one email account, I am able to login from my MacBook to periodically check the email account.
The iPad cart is about to be rolled out for use throughout the entire school, and it will become critical for the teachers and students to know that the email account associated with the iPad is to be used only for the purposes of exporting content from the iPad. I am hopeful that this setup will not cause any sort of problem, but it may happen...
Apple recently released the Apple Configurator that will apparently be a great help in managing shared iPads in a cart environment. I have yet to get my hands on the Configurator, but will hopefully update the blog soon with my experiences managing with this new resource.
