Technology Services has an iPad cart with 30 (iPad Air 2) iPads (with wi-fi only—no 3/4G). The iPad cart can be requested either through our online reservation system.
The delivery policies and procedures are the same as the wireless laptop carts. The iPad cart is reserved as a unit. The iPads are not checked out individually.
All the iPads on the cart have the same set of apps installed. Our existing app list includes the following:
|Adobe Reader||Find My I Phone||Meritum Paint Pro||Skype|
|Brushes 3||Garage Band||Microsoft Lync 2013||SofttestM|
|Camera||GDrive for Google Drive||OneDrive for Business||Messages|
|Chrome||Google Hangouts||Pages||The Weather Channel|
|Class Dojo||Hex Doodle||Paint Sparkles||
|Common Core Standards||iBooks||Paper by FiftyThree||Videolicious|
|Explain Everything||Magic Fingers||Safari||WebEx|
|Face Time||Maps||Sketchbook||YouTube Capture|
All of the paid apps (*) have been purchased through Tech Services’ corporate account so that we can “reimage” the iPads and restore the apps owned by the College. Faculty may request new apps in much the same way they request new software for installation in the computer labs. If the app is free, it can certainly be added to all the iPads during the next “refresh” period in August and January. Quicker turnaround might be feasible, but would need to be requested and approved on a case by case basis. Funds for additional paid apps would need to come from the department requesting them. Several faculty members have already indicated that they will fund these purchases through a student course fee (yes; we realize that the students’ wouldn’t get to “keep” the app their course fee funded, but since the cost of apps is relatively low, we’re planning to treat them more like consumables).
Printing from the iPad cart is available. Print jobs are setup to print to the on-board printer.
