I just talked with our Apple Rep and invited him to come and speak at our County Education Office on IOS 5. He told me that they would not have a solid understanding of IOS 5 implications for devices until late November. That being said it would appear that December would be the best time to analyze IOS 5's implications. There is sure a lot of theory "talk" about possible improvements. We are also considering the new Apple TV as a way to mirror the iPad to either a TV or Screen.

Are you going to be putting something together for IOS 5 deployment?

Yes, Jennifer- I have the same trouble, but I do have a Tech Support Specialist who plans to figure out Casper so she can remotely manage devices for the district. I'm hoping that will mean a lot less hands-on back-up/restore, etc. I have started a Google doc for people interested in more details about the process we've followed at Osseo schools in Minnesota. Just let me know if you are interested, and I can add you to the list of viewers. hilgendorfd@district279.org

Good Luck is needed with deployment of these nifty devices! While the guide is great for initial deployment..... deployment time (for a new site) is running around 3-4 hours of initial set-up (iTunes account, etc....) and about 10 minutes touch-time per device (from unpacking to device configuration). I am not using any 3rd party utility manager just iPhone configuration. Just me and soooo time consuming....

Either use the iPhone Configuration Utility or a management system, such as Casper. Here's a handy intro to the idea: http://www.jamfsoftware.com/solutions/ios-management. Good luck!

Anyone have any advice for the best/easiest way to manage syncing and updating 45 iPads?  Its just me, no IT team to assist.
