    Hi All,

    I am new to the forum and am looking for help wth a solution.

    This is required for a training program which we conduct where we are looking at providing the iPADs to the participants with the contents (pdf/ MS word/ ppt/ xls/ video files). We would like to provide the iPADs to the participamnts in the morning but want toi ensure that the content of each module can be visible only when the presenter wants it to be visibel on the participants iPADs.

    So what I am looking at is
    i) Application to load the content on all iPADs with also a feature to easily modify/ replace the content when needed.
    ii) Ensuring that the presnter have the control on which module could be seen by the participants

    Any ideas if anything is available already or will required to be custom made.

    Thanks

    It would be easier to set up a local website on your own network, then use guest mode to lock the iPads to that site. You can enable/disable pages on the site itself.

    The only other thing I can think of the Casper Suite of iOS OSX management tools. It's new, and I've only heard a little about it. It lets you provision iPads remotely, and monitor/control what iPads are viewing in a classroom environment.

    I don't know much about it, other than it was mentioned by an education blog I follow.

    Personally, I think if you need to 'lock' your classroom down that tight, you've got other issues that need to be addressed first. Limiting what your students can look at is not the same thing as keeping their attention.
