The Mobile Device Decision Maker is a homemade Excel spreadsheet that I created in order to assist Erlanger-Elsmere School District administrators in determining which type of mobile device--if any--is the right one for their needs. Instructions for using the tool are included in the spreadsheet.
Users who've stumbled upon this page and wish to use the spreadsheet themselves are welcome to do so, provided the creator gets credit and it isn't being used for commercial purposes. Users are also free to alter the spreadsheet to better suit their own needs, so long as the other conditions (credit and non-commercial use) are being met.
I have the spreadsheet "locked" so that only the yellow areas are editable (I didn't want some clueless user erasing one of the formulas in my spreadsheet--I spent a lot of time on them.). The password to unlock the spreadsheet is just "password." If you don't feel like hassling with the Excel security, I've also included a link below to an unlocked version. It's the same in every other way.
