Apple for Education

Introduction

Apple for Education is a multi-faceted solution for schools and learning environments running iOS devices.  Much like the other advanced configuration features, Education features will function only on iOS devices.  There are multiple components that can work together, or run individually depending on availability.  

The primary Apple portal, which handles users, VPP apps, and DEP devices is https://school.apple.com and is called Apple School Manager (ASM).  The application which drives the features on the devices is Apple Classroom.  For organizations that do not qualify for ASM, the classroom application can still prove useful, and will still function with MaaS360 driven workflows.

When enabled the Apple for Education features will appear under Services, and a new menu item "Schools" will appear on the top navigation bar:
