Apple Tune-In Series

by Jean Tower

If you haven’t tried the Tune-In series from Apple, I recommend it. These are free webcasts. If you are deploying any iPads in your school or district it will be worth your while to sit in on these.

Apple holds these all weekdays from April 23 to August 31, 2012.

Monday:

iPad in Education

“In this session, learn about how the new iPad and iOS 5 can transform your classroom. In addition, learn about all of the content available for iPad and how your institution can purchase it.”

Tuesday:

Content Creation

“Explore the powerful content creation apps in the iWork and iLife suites that engage students on both Mac and iPad. Also, learn about the new iBooks textbooks, and how easy it is to create your own interactive Multi-Touch books with iBooks Author.”

Wednesday:

Using and Creating Courses in iTunes U

“Explore the new iTunes U app, and learn how to create and distribute courses on iTunes U.”

Thursday:

Licensing and Deployment

“Learn about licensing, deployment, and how education institutions can use the Volume Purchase Program to purchase apps and books in volume and distribute them to their end users. This webcast also illustrates the important aspects of a successful iOS deployment — configuration, management, and deployment models.”

Friday:

Deploying with Apple Configurator

“End your week by exploring the new Apple Configurator. Learn how it can be used to quickly configure large numbers of iOS devices and make deployments easy and efficient.”

We have been testing out the configurator and so far it is working well for us. Really makes app management (no easy task) a little easier.
