Apple School Manager
With Apple School Manager, you can set up access to Apple services for everyone at your school, so your students and staff are ready to go from day one. Apple has heard from many customers that they needed to make access to these services easier for schools. Now with federated authentication, Apple enables schools to simplify the task of integrating a school’s existing systems, so they don’t have to create additional logins for their students and you can now connect to Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Identity Provider) and integrate with student information system (SIS).
Students will also get access to 200GB of iCloud storage for documents, photos, videos and other files. Teachers can use Schoolwork to hand out assignments and follow student progress, helping them tailor instruction to each student’s needs.
From a content perspective, with apps from the App Store and books from Apple Books, iPad can transform into almost any tool you can imagine—a calculator, a periodic table, a telescope, a movie studio, a musical instrument, a mobile science lab and more. Apple School Manager makes it easy to buy apps and books in bulk for all your students and teachers. And using your MDM, it’s easy to deploy your apps wirelessly to iPad.
And when it comes to privacy, these accounts have limitations on purchasing and communications, no targeted advertising, and are designed to help schools comply with their legal obligations around student privacy.
