iTunes App Store Volume Purchase
    Apps on each iPod Touch will need to be purchased. Recently, Apple began the App Store Volume Purchase Program for education. With this program an Authorized Purchaser for your school or district will purchase an App in bulk. Apple will then send a series of codes that can be used to download the app to your iPods. The codes are similar to redeeming an iTunes gift card and work only for the specific App purchased. Many Apps are available at a bulk discount via the Volume Purchase Page. To find out more information visit:
