Simplify K-12 classroom device management across platforms

  • Integrate with Apple School Manager Integrate Mobile Device Manager Plus and Apple School Manager to enroll and manage school devices seamlessly. Once integrated, each purchased device will be automatically added to the Apple School Manager portal. Once a device is enrolled, it will be immediately ready for management from the Mobile Device Manager Plus server console.
  • Configure and manage Shared iPads Set up and provision shared iPads to students, creating a separate virtual workspace for each learner on the same device. You can also set device passcodes, configure these devices to connect only to the school's WiFi network, and more.
  • Set up Kiosk Mode Configure iPhones and iPads to run in a restricted Kiosk Mode with only specific device functionalities and apps allowed. Devices can also be configured to run a specific app during an event like a test or exam using autonomous Kiosk Mode. You can also customize the device's home-screen layout and wallpaper to match your organization's branding.
  • Share educational content Integrate Mobile Device Manager Plus and Apple School Manager so you can purchase app licenses and books from the App Store in bulk, then seamlessly distribute them to groups of managed devices. Apps can be silently installed on devices, with no student intervention.
  • Benefit from the Classroom app Leverage the capabilities of Apple's Classroom app by distributing it to managed classroom devices. Using the Classroom app, teachers can remotely view the screens of students' devices, lock devices to run a specific app, as well as Airdrop necessary learning materials during class.
  • Apply extensive restrictions Configure device functionalities to ensure learning devices aren't misused or cause distraction during class. Furthermore, you may restrict device features and functions that you consider unnecessary for your learning environment, including the use of the camera and microphone or Copy + Paste. Devices can also be locked into running only a specific app or set of apps using Kiosk Mode. You can also manage app permissions, ensuring apps can access only what is required.
  • Monitor web use Route all internet usage from apps and browsers on classroom devices to a proxy server, thereby allowing you to audit web usage within the classroom. Known and trusted URLs can bypass the proxy server, if needed.
  • Bypass factory reset protection Ensure Android devices can be re-assigned to a different student after a reset, even if another student has had their Google account added to it. Pre-configure the IT admins' organization IDs on devices through Mobile Device Manager Plus, to enable easy access to devices after each reset.
  • Keep location always on Track device locations at any time by preventing device users from turning off location services.
  • Customize device wallpapers Customize the wallpaper of smart-learning devices to match the theme and branding of your educational institution.
  • Integrate with GSuite Integrate with GSuite and enroll school devices into the Mobile Device Manager Plus server for unified management. You can distribute user-specific or device-specific management profiles, thereby allowing you to provision resources and permissions to groups of students or to groups of devices.
  • Allow shared device use Enable the use of Ephemeral mode to allow multiple students to use the same device, with user data being removed after each session. If the student does not have an account, you can still allow them to access the device using Guest Mode. On the other hand, if you only want a specific set of students to use a device, you can configure exactly who is allowed to sign in and use managed Chromebooks.
  • Secure device browsers Enable students to focus on learning by configuring Chrome browser settings on each Chromebooks used for education. Prevent the use of incognito mode, modification of bookmarks, and the display of pop-ups. You can also set a webpage to be the browser's home screen.

MDM for education 101: Everything you need to know

  • 1. What is MDM for education?

    Mobile device management (MDM) for schools and educational institutions enables learning through smart devices by configuring these devices to be appropriate for educational use. MDM solutions for education allow the organization's IT admin or teaching staff to manage devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, and TVs that aid in learning. Implementing an MDM facilitates the proper setup for the devices used in your learning environment, this makes them easier for students to use for learning, while protecting them from misuse.

  • 2. What's the need for an MDM solution in schools?

    The lack of organizational management of the devices used by students can result in devices being misused within the classroom. Devices can have unnecessary apps installed on them and malicious web content accessed, which can not only affect the students' focus but also introduce security threats into the device. To prevent this from happening and to effectively create a distraction-free learning environment, it is essential to have a comprehensive MDM solution for education in place, like Mobile Device Manager Plus.

  • 3. How can MDM help with device management in schools?

    MDM tools for education can help ensure that devices do not have any malicious apps or content being accessed on them. Moreover, device functionalities that are not required for learning can be restricted from use. In addition to this, with an MDM solution implemented in the school, the IT admin can configure devices to be classroom-appropriate both remotely and in bulk, without manually handling each device.

  • 4. What should you look for when selecting an MDM tool for your school?

    When you choose an MDM tool for your school, you need to ensure the solution offers relevant features that help with classroom device management. These include:

    • Kiosk Mode to help lockdown and restrict devices, thereby eliminating distractions.
    • The ability to configure shared devices to allow multiple students to learn from the same device.
    • App management features that allow learning apps to be installed without student intervention, and unnecessary apps to be blocked.
    • Web content filters that enables malicious URLs to be restricted from access.
    • Location tracking to ensure lost devices can be recovered.
  • 5. How can you leverage iPads in schools?

    Using an MDM tool for education, the iPads used in your school can be brought under your control. Once this is done, these iPads can be configured for use as shared iPads, which will create multiple virtual workspaces within the same device for multiple students to use. Shared iPads can allow a larger number of your learners to benefit from smart learning while saving money for your organization. When an MDM tool is used to configure shared iPads, it saves time for the IT admin by facilitating bulk and over-the-air device configuration.
