So where are schools at with Volume Purchasing?

I have one school that has it set up on 90 iPads. It seems to be working ok except for finding certain apps. Have any other schools out there started it? I would be interested to hear how it is going, any problems or hints to help out other schools?

    Jacqui - Must admit I can't see it as while Apple take a whack of the revenue from apps, you are negotiating with a particular software developer for each app unless it is from the Apple stable.  If we asked in the VLN what the MoE supplied app list would be I can imagine the fun debates we would have on that one!

    Also the NZ market is so small that the dollar amounts of any savings (for the MoE) given the pricing of apps would be minimal too.

    Contact one of the e-Learning team at the MoE for a definitive answer maybe .... but don't hold your breath I would suggest.
