Empower distance learning with Apple and Jamf.
A better remote learning experience with streamlined device provisioning, secure software deployments and ongoing remote device management.
Education is evolving. Jamf is here to help.
Learning is no longer confined to the classroom or traditional classroom hours. Schools worldwide were forced to move to distance learning rapidly and many are still determining what the next school year will look like.
Jamf helped many make the transition to distance learning and is fully equipped to accommodate ongoing remote classrooms, in-person learning or a hybrid. Our education solution —Jamf School — continues to innovate with new offerings and enhance existing features to best serve students, teachers, parents and IT — so “anywhere learning” is achievable for everyone.

Overcome common roadblocks of distance learning.
From fractured communication platforms, lack of instructional resources and limited deployment capabilities that plague schools, Jamf’s ensures students, teachers and parents have the tools they need to succeed with learning – no matter where it’s taking place.
Remote Class is a feature of the Jamf School Teacher app that enhances communication on iPad in a 1-to-1 or shared-device environment. This feature empowers educators with an easy and secure way of connecting with students through Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Meet. Using the Jamf School Teacher app, a teacher can easily deploy a conference link to a student’s iPad in Jamf School Student — creating a meeting in a quick click.
With Jamf education solutions for distance learning, you can:
Zero-touch provisioning and deployment
Automate enrollment and configuration of mass quantities of Mac, iPad, iPhone and Apple TV to be drop-shipped from Apple or another central location to students and teachers — all without having to open the box.
Remote application licensing and distribution
Remotely distribute pre-configured apps from the App Store or third-party vendors. Whether you’d like to give your teachers a faster path to leveraging new apps in the classroom — through App Request — or are looking for a better way to deploy apps, Jamf has you covered.
Operating system and application updates
Leverage automated inventory data and dynamic Smart Groups to ensure all teacher and student apps and operating systems are up to date and operational.
Schools with Managed Apple IDs can choose to allow students to use them for iMessage or Group FaceTime which is a phenomenal way to collaborate in real time. Other companies such as Zoom and Discord make their services free or discounted for education purposes.
Instant access to help for students
Jamf facilitates classroom management so teachers can quickly identify which students may need help and require attention. Students can “raise their hand” to alert a teacher when help is needed and teachers can easily reply via messages, email, or start a Remote Class for a 1:1 help session.
Virtual classroom management app
Teachers gain resources to manage their class and keep students focused on their education — regardless of where they are learning. This includes restricting websites, apps and the camera, plus locking all student devices at once.
Remote student apps
Students are empowered to restrict permissions over their own device, allowing them to focus on their education and eliminate distractions.
iOS and watchOS apps for Parents
Parents gain the ability to limit apps and device functionality on their student’s device, eliminating potential distractions from learning.
The value of a Jamf partnership doesn’t end there. From the latest and greatest communication tools like Zoom and FaceTime, to instruction resources like the GeoGebra, Sphero and Explain Everything! Jamf supports the right tools and resources to empower remote learning.
