Manage all your schools iPads and mobile devices from one place

…..with NYES Digital’s Mobile Device Management Service

The benefit of using a mobile device management solution means that you are in complete control of what resources a student can see and access.  Screens can be fully customised to support different learners and display the apps you want the student to use and even place them on screen in a position you choose.  The settings can be loaded to all devices in one go – no more having to update each individual device or wait for your school technician’s visit before new versions are installed.

How can Mobile Device Management help me?

In Supporting Lessons

  • Ensure all devices in a class have the resources needed to support lessons. This could be apps, or access to approved websites.
  • Lock down the devices so no additional material can be added or accidentally deleted.
  • Fix the position of apps on the screen so all students have the same view. This helps when explaining where to find information.

In Safeguarding Students

  • Web filtering – when connected to the schools internet all filtering is taken care of by your Smoothwall UTM.
  • Off-site web filtering – when the student is connected to the internet at home or through a public WiFi you can still block access to certain websites. Logs can be viewed to see what has been accessed.

In Managing Devices

  • Know the status of all your devices at any one time for example how much battery life is left, when the device was last used.
  • Install or update an application on a single device, group of devices or all devices.
  • Content is locked down so nothing can be modified meaning no resetting is necessary.
  • Customise settings for example disable the camera on devices or block purchasing.
  • Set user profiles such as admin or teacher for managing the dashboard.
  • Customise groups of devices within schools for classes, group work or individual work. For example into Key Stage levels, SEN sets or class sets.

In Location Tracking

  • Know where your devices are located at any one time.
  • Set a perimeter and notify if the mobile device leaves the premises.
  • Notify when the device returns to the premises.

Developed by Mobile Guardian the mobile device management solutions offers you control of all mobile devices through a web based dashboard that can be accessed at any time, from anywhere when needed.  The dashboard lets you manage apps, deploy content, monitor device health, locate devices and manage access to certain website to help safeguard students.

The freedom mobile devices offer students has been embraced by modern schools.  Students move seamlessly from classroom to classroom, continue learning off site and use their devices at home or on holiday.  NYES Digital’s Mobile Device Management solution has been chosen to create and monitor a safe and secure digital environment for students during their digital learning journey.
