Hello,

 

We are experiencing a substantial increase in the requests being made by faculty and staff for iPads.   Does anyone have a policy or any insight on the best way to handle these requests – not only from a hardware support perspective but from a software / App store perspective?  

 

TIA

 

Gary

Gary,
 
I know this is going to be contrary to most institution's approaches on the subject, but we don't let departments buy iPads.  Solely because of the way that Apple handles apps, we would need to create an entire distribution hierarchy just for that product.  I know that many institutions have done that and it can work.  We are just very lean on the administrative side and are not dealing with it for now.
