How to manage iPads in schools where VPP not available?
I am trying to set up an iPad scheme with 24 iPads in a school in Portugal, where Apple's VPP program is not available yet. I understand that, in this environment (multiple users and multiple devices) you have to purchase each app for each device, and I think we will have to use iTunes Gift Cards to purchase apps for each iPad.
I have a few questions which I am hoping members of this community will be able to help me with:
1. Am I right in thinking that I will need a different iTunes Gift Card for each iPad?
2. Can all 24 iPads be linked to the same iTunes account, or will I need multiple accounts?
3. Is it possible to use Apple Configurator to set up the iPads if you are not using the VPP scheme?
4. If not, then is there any point getting a trolley that syncs as well as charges, or will each iPad have to be sync'ed individually if not using Apple Configurator?
Many thanks in advance for any answers or advice!
