Getting your iPad
If you are allocated an iPad on commencement, ITS will supply you with an iPad and an iTunes card so you can purchase applications. Additional iTunes cards can be requested through your subject leader. Download the iBook supplied to your iPad or desktop iMac computer for offline reference. Choose the arrow, and then 'Open in iBooks'. PDF version available below. On iPad, download the document.

It is important to set your iPad up to do as much work automatically, to minimise the work you need to do. Here are some helpful settings to configure in the Settings App:
Setting up your iPad. Which apps?
ITS will assist you to configure your iPad to access wifi and email. You will need to create an Apple ID to purchase and maintain the software applications on the device. If you would like support with getting and using applications you can contact Jennifer Mitchell to make an orientation appointment, or you can ask your colleagues for some on the spot advice in the interim.
The applications you will need to purchase will depend on your teaching discipline area. Your subject leader can advise you about specialist applications you might need. Here are the standard applications being used across the college for presenting, creating, and annotating. Most of these applications are also available on your desktop iMac. Documents annotated in GoodReader 4 can be worked on in Preview.
