TabPilot Tablet Manager

TabPilot Tablet Manager


SUMMARY:
TabPilot is a cloud-based management system that puts teachers in control of entire sets of classroom tablets: lockdown tool, app distribution tools, app inventory, content/file management, more. Students see ONLY apps & links configured by their teacher, so they stay on-task. Teachers use a standard browser to configure a whole set of tablets wirelessly with a few clicks -- great for shared-use environments where different teachers borrow a cart-full of tablets. TabPilot can be used to lock tablets into a single app. It can also lock students into a single web site with the optional TabPilot FocalPoint secure browser.

Freeze tablet screens with custom message to get student attention. Monitor student screens remotely.

DETAILS:
Using TabPilot, teachers and administrators can:
- Lock down tablets to prevent access to settings
- Choose which apps students can access during a class period
- Configure web-links for quick access to web sites
- Set backgrounds on groups of tablets, including uploading of custom backgrounds
- Distribute apps to groups of tablets for automatic installation*
- Content management features to push e-books, PDF documents, and more to devices
- Administrators can check for app license compliance and for out-of-date apps to be updated
- Administrators can hide apps from teacher view (such as system apps)
- "My Device" feature allows teacher tablets to be registered for use with the system

Teachers choose from thousands of apps available on the Android platform using the Google Play market, or other standard sources. Students see only the apps that the teacher enables and are locked out of system settings and other apps. Each teacher can activate his or her own configuration and app choices.

TabPilot runs on value-priced TabPilot-branded tablets as well as select third party tablets. TabPilot turns the tablet into a kiosk for student use.

In addition to letting teachers choose what apps students can use, TabPilot also functions as an app distribution system, allowing administrators to install apps remotely to entire groups of tablets.

TabPilot Launch & Lock™ is the student tablet interface that allows students to launch applications, while locking them out of system settings. TabPilot Control Tower™ is the centralized management interface that teachers access using a standard web browser from any computer. The tablets are managed wirelessly.

Launch & Lock is also the platform for FocalPoint, the secure, locked-down browser (kiosk) for TabPilot.

Use of this app requires an account to the TabPilot Control Tower. Both free and paid accounts are available. Free accounts are limited to managing two devices. A free trial of the full version is also available. Sign up at www.tabpilot.com

Note: Free accounts are issued only to educational institutions. Users must sign up using their school-issued e-mail address.

Awesome Making tablets do what I want in the classroom not the students

Possibly a great solution We have run this as a trial with 10 Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablets. So far it's gone well although the web interface is a little confusing and it's a fairly complicated process of getting apps onto all tablets although I'm sure over time this will get easier. For some reason we can't put .pdf files on to the tablets for students to see. It won't automatically install Apps onto the Tab 2 and the advice from the very prompt and very helpful customer support was to root the tablet which isn't exactly a straight forward process. Also the cost of the system is $50 per tablet and then after an initial free year use of the control tower there is another annual fee of between $5-$12 per tablet. This has potential and the easy interface is a great strength combined with the fact that students won't be able to get into the settings and paly games etc..
