    iPad Browsing School Network, Saving stuff

    Hi there,
    My school has been successfully using a small bank of iPads for almost 1 year.
    We got them primarily to aid with assessment (so staff primarily use them) and they have worked incredibly well.

    Staff have taken to them so well, I am being asked for more apps and increasingly staff are asking if they are going to be able to print from the iPads as well as save work.

    Does anyone know how easy it would be to hook the ipads up to a shared folder on our Windows network? I can easily create a new shared folder on our RM CC4 server or HP Storage Works server which staff can access from their computer and can (hopfully) access via their iPad. Does anyone have any experience of how this can be achieved?

    Any help and suggestions would be really appreciated.

    There's a piece of software called foldr which allows this. The people who showed it to us are Western Computer - Home

    There is an app called Filebrowser. You can set it up to go straight to any shared folder you need to.

    Yes, I found this one when searching on the app store. I can see this will allow me to browse, but would it allow me to save files from the iPad to it? Mainly screenshots, but also maybe work from Pages?

    Thanks

    Yes you can. You need to select an option to open in another app, choose filebrowser then open the place to save it. Pictures and screenshots are easier because filebrowser already looks at the photo store on the iPad.
