Many Northside campuses have received carts of netbooks as part of the bond deployment of new computer equipment. These carts are for student use for a variety of technology initiatives. These carts are special because they are set up to be shut down remotely each night. Technology Services is also able to push software updates to these carts – if the campus staff is following the instructions for use of the carts. Each campus administrator decides where the “home” for each cart will be. It is uber-important for the cart to be returned to its “home” and be connected to the network on a regular basis. This is the only way the cart and the computer equipment inside can receive the updates. Here are some documents that will help you understand how to use the managed cart most efficiently:
