    We are looking at implementing iPads throughout our school, or at least getting a trolley of approx. 30 - however we are worried about security of students work.
    Does anyone know anything about having specific user accounts on the iPad? is it possible? is it coming? HELP ME!!!;)

    Thank you!

    There is no concept of separate users or user profiles on the iPad - it's a single user device.

    This is the same in current beta versions of iOS 5 and Apple have not announced anything that would suggest this is going to change in the future

    Hi there
    That's what I do for a living :) Currently rolling out 700 iPads into a school. We've learnt a lot (saving time wise and money wise). If you need any other assistance don't hesitate to contact me.

    Also...if you're looking for an implementation of a mdm solution...I do work for Mobile Iron.

    Take a look and see if that might be an option for you: http://www.mobileiron.com/
