Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Make device management simple and secure. MDM allows IT teams to customise settings, install apps, audit and secure devices wirelessly, no matter where they are. Working alongside Apple School Manager empowers IT teams by automating device setup and enrolment with the right settings and restrictions, and allowing devices and apps to be easily assigned to students, teachers or class groups.
Apple School Manager
Apple School Manager is a service that lets you buy content, conﬁgure your mobile device management (MDM) solution, automatically create Managed Apple IDs for your students and staff and set up iTunes U courses. Apple School Manager is accessible on the web and is designed for technology managers, IT administrators, staff and instructors.
When you purchase apps for iPad and Mac through Apple School Manager, your education volume discount is applied automatically. And as soon as you make a purchase, it’s simple to use your MDM to push apps and books to the classes, teachers and students who need them.
Managed Apple IDs
Managed Apple IDs are a new kind of Apple ID that give students access to iCloud, iTunes U and Shared iPad, while maintaining the control schools need. Apple School Manager lets you automatically create Managed Apple IDs for all students and staff by importing the necessary data from your Student Information System (SIS) or CSV ﬁles. And because Managed Apple IDs are owned and assigned by your institution, you can easily reset passwords, audit accounts and deﬁne roles for everyone in the school.
Shared iPad is an iOS feature for schools that share devices and still want to provide personalised experiences. Before class begins, teachers can assign any student any shared iPad. Students know which devices to use because their pictures are on the Lock screens.
Classroom turns iPad into a powerful teaching assistant, helping a teacher guide students through a lesson, see their progress, and keep them on track. With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student device at the same time, or launch a different app for each group of students. Classroom helps teachers focus on teaching so students can focus on learning.
