Learn how Apple technology for higher education supports success

Learn how higher education institutions can leverage Apple to create engaging learning environments and overcome deployment and device management challenges.

Even though campuses and learning environments differ among higher education institutions, the core pillar of all of them remains the same — to create an effective, yet engaging learning environment for each and every student. By making the right technology decisions, it’s easier for institutions to accommodate enhanced programs like study abroad experiences and field research opportunities for students, more intuitive curriculum management for instructors and all while simplifying management and security workflows for IT.

In our recently published e-book, Apple Educational Technology Essentials for Higher Education, we provide technology essentials for Apple and Mac in higher education that your institution can leverage to create the best ecosystem for all of your users — from faculty and staff to students and IT administrators.

So why is Apple the best choice for the long-term success of your educational technology programs? While upfront costs of Apple hardware can be more expensive than competitors, the pendulum quickly swings when looking beyond initial purchase price. Download our e-book to get the full details on the functionalities that place Apple at the top of the class. Apple is the ideal choice for education and Jamf is the ideal choice for Apple.

The popularity of Apple devices is also fueling its adoption rate among educational institutions and is directly linked to the growth of security incidents aimed specifically at Apple devices and their users.
