Simplify device rollout with student engagement

Read how Catholic College Wodonga gives its students the opportunity to enhance their IT skills, while saving valuable time for the school’s ICT team in the process.

Catholic College Wodonga continually strives to build a sense of belonging, involvement and initiative within its students. And while they believe technology is an integral part to accomplishing this work, rapid growth in their student population presented a roadblock that halted their progression toward becoming a more technologically focused campus.

“We have more than 1,800 devices across our school, so their management is quite a task,” said Hayden Middlin, ICT manager, Catholic College Wodonga. This was especially problematic when the school rolled out new devices at the beginning of the year. But a longtime customer of Jamf, Catholic College Wodonga understood the capabilities of Jamf Pro and how students could help.

During the rollout, each student received a MacBook Air in a new, shrink-wrapped box. They opened their own device, and with guidance, created an admin account based on their school Microsoft Active Directory credentials. Having the students help with the rollout not only gave them an opportunity to enhance their IT skills, but also saved the school’s ICT team valuable time.

“What used to take us days can now be completed in just hours,” Middlin said, adding that the school no longer worries about how to scale their technology with rising enrollment. “We would certainly not be able to manage our 1,800 devices across the school without Jamf, and management would be a nightmare.”
