iPads, Labs/classroom use, 802.1x - Take Two
This question was asked 18 months ago by William from UTA, but without much in the way of an answer. The replies immediately went down a cloudpath rabbit hole, never to be seen again. Here is what William asked, and exactly the situation my team was put in today: "Does anyone have experience managing iPads for classrooms (where an iPad is given to each user and returned at the end of the course, only for the next class to pick them up)? I'm interested in how to manage credentials in an 802.1x environment (to ensure actions on the network are attributable to the user at that time). If someone has resolved this, I'd like to speak with them, we have instructors working on proposals." We have a 'no generic account' policy on our campus, and if it is possible we want all of our students to use their own credentials at the start of the class period with the iPads getting amnesia at the end. It seems that re-syncing them using the Apple Configurator or iTunes is the only way, but I wanted to check with the hive mind to see if anyone had some neat trick. Ideally it is a setting/template to be used, and not some MDM/onboarding solution. -Luke =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Luke Jenkins Network Engineer Weber State University ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
