Casper and Configurator – Learnings from iOS Deployment

Andy Parker,┬áSt Cuthbert’s College, AucklandPart of XW13

This session will look at the technical aspects of deploying iOS devices using both Apple Configurator and JAMF’s Casper suite, and the use-cases of differing deployment types for individuals and labs with references to Apple’s three suggested models of app ownership.

I’ll share lessons we’ve learnt from the different methods we have used to provision iPads for students and staff.

The sessions will be relevant to faculty looking to provide iPads to users as well as technical staff responsible for making an iPad rollout work as painlessly as possible.
