Simplify Network Access: iPad Deployment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the special recipe that convinces you to change your IT strategy? My recipe consists of mobile, social, gaming, and geolocation in order to meet strategic goals. After personally meeting with faculty and listening to what was most frustrating about technology in their daily workflow, I had a clear understanding of what had to change: reduce complexity in taking attendance, submit grades, and accessing files. Currently, I have moved these administrative tasks to a mobile first environment. This presentation will detail how to set-up the Cloud Agent and Citrix apps on your iPad (or other mobile device) to access both your desktop environment and the student database in order to serve up information simply and reliably. Participants will download these apps and learn how to configure them, as well as gain an understanding of the network infrastructure required to support them. In addition to discussing faculty implementation, student deployment will be discussed, especially with regard to access of network files via the Thayer Planner on the iPad and the deployment of authorization codes for apps and eBooks.
