If the content were stored in a shared (network) location, why not teach the
students to load it onto the Sansa themselves?
That said, I agree with Lucy: I have worked with a couple of Sansa's players
and I find the interface clumsy at best, plus the ones I worked with would
only sync through Media Player, making it a more complicated process than
(IMHO) should be necessary. Maybe the newer ones support simple drag 'n drop
like a flash drive? If so, it could be a snap for students to grab their own
content, plus making it their responsibility.
