Microsoft have announced “Intune for Education” – as the name suggests, a version of the Intune app & device management program aimed at educational institutions. Features include:
- Express setup
- Settings follow students across any devices
- Apps follow students across any devices
- Easy integration with Office 365
- Integration with School Data Sync (SDS)
This means things need to be configured just once for students to be safe and productive across all the school’s devices.
Settings can be applied to apps, browsers and the Start Menu as well as anti-malware protection, all helping keep students as safe online as possible.
Integration with School Data Sync makes it easier than ever for apps to be automatically deployed based on student activity – add a student to the media class roster and they’ll have all the relevant apps available upon their next login.
