Add applications to the Dock via Apple Remote Desktop

Works for me if the single quotes are replaced with double quotes.
Some additional hints: replace persistent-apps with persistent-others to add documents or folders to the Trash side of the Dock.
If you send the command for the account that is currently in use, you can replace /Users/student/ in the path for the preference file with a tilde ~ to signify the current home folder. The icon will then appear in the user's Dock the next time they log in. This greatly facilitates adding items to a large number of computers at once.
