Last week apple announced their latest iteration of the iPad. In addition to this they snuck out a new piece of software for managing numbers of iPads. This would have been really useful at the beginning of the project and is certainly of interest for anyone wanting to make available iPads for groups of students.
I’m yet to try this out (you need the latest version of mac OS – Lion to be able to run it) but initially it looks like a really useful piece of software.
You can read a review of it here. It appears that it isn’t designed to be a full blown solution but for projects such as this it would be perfect.
