Apple Classroom without Apple School Manager?
Posted: 7/17/17 at 6:48 AM by unsoluble
We're going to have a set of 30 new iPads this fall, managed by our IT department (with JAMF). I'm going to be teaching with these, with all 450 students in the school, one class per hour.
So they're going to be shared iPads, but: Our district isn't currently willing to support Apple School Manager.
Wondering: Will I still be able to use Apple Classroom, to do all of the local control / distribution / monitoring stuff, without the ASM backend? Can I just assign device names instead of student names? Or will Classroom simply not work in this scenario?
I know I won't be able to do the true Shared iPad stuff, with the logging in and out and such, but would like to at least have the screen management stuff working...
