mdm is key to education IT
At Dextera, our mandate is all about enhancing the learning experience, and Mobile Device Management (MDM)
is key to the integration of IT into the learning environment.
For the Apple ecosystem, Apple School Manager is an essential administrative and staging tool,
whilst the MDM manages the deployment of devices, applications and restrictions.
Apple School Manager
Apple School Manager (ASM) is a free web portal that helps you manage people, devices and content in Schools.
It’s used to enrol devices into a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system; purchase apps and books for students and staff and setup Managed Apple IDs for students to access devices and utilise iCloud.
ASM is integral to MDM, so speak to your principal and enrol your school here.
