Programs like SAP, Microsoft Word, Excel, etc. don't play nice on an iPad. Information Technology has provided a workaround that was sent out this week.
Here are the basics of what you need in order to make the workaround work:
1. You need a WIFI connection (also one that's pretty good - you probably will have difficulty on a weak connection)
2. You need VPN software. IT provides an explanation of what and how to use that here - http://access2.nku.edu/view/Content/VPNiPadInstall.aspx
3. You need the VM ware software. Follow the instruction on this page - http://access2.nku.edu/view/Content/ViewIpadOnCampus.aspx
4. Have a little patience - you will likely need to refer to these directions at least one more time to get the hang of it.
Once you get into the Virtual Machine PC, you'll find that it runs just like a PC.
