Across the UK, a majority of students have attended school remotely either full-time or part-time. It’s been a challenge not just for teachers and administrators to make the shift to remote and hybrid learning environments, but also for the IT teams and support teams that needed to manage the process.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a platform that let you manage every device, take remote control when there’s a problem, and make everything easier? There is.
VISO MDM for Education was designed to make the job of managing devices used for education simple.
While simplifying the task of managing a fleet of devices for IT teams, it also frees up teachers to spend less time worrying about technology and more time teaching. It also lets principals and administrators feel confident that devices are being used securely and properly.
Here are 10 ways VISO MDM for Education can help you more efficiently manage your entire fleet.
With students at home and – at times – teachers and administrators working remotely, troubleshooting can be more of an issue when you can’t easily get your hands on a device.
When there’s a problem, remote troubleshooting lets your support team take control remotely and perform whatever tasks need to be done to solve the problem. It doesn’t require installation of additional software.
Support teams can use the VISO MDM for Education cloud-based platform to connect to any device from any browser.
You will be able to alert and request access or provide remote support for unattended devices.
The process of enrolling and deploying hardware can be time-consuming. VISO MDM for Education allows you to deploy devices in less time by executing preset configuration and settings.
The first time devices are connected, they can be automatically configured to your custom setting without any user intervention.
This allows devices or your network to be ready to go as soon as they are taken out of the box, switched on, and connected.
VISO MDM for Education makes it easy for you to manage all your devices and operating systems in one interface.
VISO MDM for Education can also support Kiosks, digital signage, or interactive touchscreens in-school or on location.
Need to get information out to everyone at the same time, a group of students, or individual users? Customised messages can be sent easily from the device management platform or remotely. Messages aren’t limited to text, either. They can incorporate alert sounds, audio, or images.
There are multiple options for deployment, including triggering messages based on login, predefined scenarios, policies, or location.
Smart recovery of devices can be a lifesaver for IT teams – especially if there’s a system malfunction. VISO MDM for Education allows you to automatically restore Windows systems to their original configurations and working conditions in just a few systems. This mitigates any potential damage from crashes, human errors, and security lapses.
Geo-fencing can track where school-owned devices go and detect if they’re taken outside allowed perimeters. When devices leave designated areas, alerts are automatically triggered.
If devices are lost or stolen, they can be locked remotely. Data and content can be wiped remotely as well.
With kiosk mode, you can create an encapsulated environment and restrict usage to the tools you allow. You can choose how your device looks and feel and what functionality can exist.
Teachers will love kiosk mode because students can only access the teaching tools they’re given and not be distracted by playing games, browsing online, or accessing other software.
VISO MDM for Education lets you easily set group policies or fine-tune device settings for every device in your fleet.
Policies can help you maintain better control over devices and limit the access that may impact security, such as:
Admins can enforce multiple profiles or create customised environments.
With VISO MDM for Education, it’s easy to manage software on remote devices. Installation and updates can be handled from a central repository or Google or Apple stores without requiring any user intervention.
Software can be updated or installed on individual devices or across an entire fleet on the fly or via a preset schedule.
Stakeholders at all levels can take advantage of VISO MDM for Education’s reporting tools. You can look globally at device usage or drill down to individual devices to check.
VISO MDM for Education provides tools for all stakeholders to optimise performance.
