Professional Support for Educators
The Volume Purchase Programme is an iniative by Apple for Education and Business. At its simplest, once you purchase 20+ Apps, you get a 50% discount. It also provides a central purchasing area under one Apple ID to purchase Apps. This makes it easy for educators to purchase new Apps and download redeemable codes when needed.
The Device Enrollment Programme is an iniative by Apple for organisations with many multiple devices who already have an MDM (Mobile Device Management) structure in place. This allows your Profiles to be automatically installed when purchasing the new devices from your reseller.
If you only have a few devices - deployment is not a requirement. However, when future-planning, you should take into account a 1:1 strategy. This means that over time your institution may eventually have one device per pupil. A planned course of action from the beginning can save countless wasted hours and needless expense. How do you push a new App to all 500 of your devices at once? - We have the strategies and answers.
Configurator is a free application from Apple for managing multiple devices. It configures and installs Configuration Profiles on devices which can restrict usage, force passcodes, only allow certain websites to be browsed and more. We have the expertise to setup and install the required profiles on your devices.
We keep and maintain lists of Apps which are tried and tested in the educational realm. We teach usage of these Apps to teachers who are unfamiliar with them as well as introducing you to AppSmashing (using multiple apps together). We also explain how to create and use workflows and get the best from your iPad.
