Profile manager and app distribution
I have set up lion server and enabled profile manager. I am able to deploy payloads to an iPad and it all looks promising. However, we will be shortly purchasing around 28 iPads for Art and Design. I am a little confused about how I will centrally manage apps that the department want. The iPads will not belong to a student and will be shared between several classes and years. How do I purchase 28 copies of an app? Could I use a central Appleid or iTunes account?
I have read that the Apple Volume Purchase Program is not available in the UK as I write.
We are a windows 2008 server school and so used to running application servers, network apps, etc
I would love to hear from anybody that manages iPads/apps in the classroom.
