    iPads: Apple Configurator

    We were recently taken ownership of 20 ipads for student use (wooohooo grunt) at the moment i am stuck as to how to securely configure these.

    our wireless connects via radius, and smoothwall requires authentication too. i dont want the kids logging into these devices as then they will know how to and bring their own ipads etc in.

    I am looking into apple configurator but understand we need a mac to run it on.

    at present i want to be able to lock down the wireless settings, contact, calendar.

    TBH i dont know why they are needed we run a one laptop per child, but laser etching the case was fun!!!

    how have others managed achieve a secure solution

    You could look at meraki, a free website for managing a number of devices. I had mixed feelings about it but does restrictions. Failing that iTunes and creating a master iPad and backup then restore it to another iPad.

    I'm sure I've seen some guides about it somewhere on here.
