Empower remote learning with Apple and Jamf.
A better remote learning experience with streamlined device provisioning, software deployments and remote management.
Build a strong and connected remote learning experience.
Today, learning is no longer confined to the classroom or traditional classroom hours. In the wake of a health crisis — and to best keep students and educators safe — schools are re-evaluating their teaching practices and learning environments to accommodate an at-home, remote learning environment.
With the right tools in place, virtual learning can be as simple and intuitive as in-person. With Jamf, you receive tools and resources that serve students, teachers, parents and IT — so learning never skips a beat, no matter where it’s taking place.
Who uses Jamf to empower their educators, students and parents?

Offer the same in-class experience to remote learners.
With Jamf’s cloud-based solutions, you get everything you need to deploy any Apple device to every teacher and student.
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.
Identity-based access to resources
With Jamf and cloud-identity providers such as Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure Active Directory, provision students’ Macs so they have access to the apps they need, ensuring a seamless and uninterrupted learning experience for students at home.
Secure access to school resources
Because Jamf requires a cloud-identity username and password, IT administrators are able to monitor what Mac is being accessed, from where and by whom. This is a powerful security measure to keep devices and the student information on those devices secure, no matter where students are learning from.
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. Teachers can view where the student is in their iPad lesson or students can “raise their hand” to alert a teacher when help is needed.
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.

Facilitating remote learning is only going to be more commonplace — with or without health scares. With a plan in place and the right tools at the ready, transitioning from in-class to remote learning can be as easy as reciting the ABCs.
