BYOD programs are becoming more common at K-12 schools, with students bringing in their own Apple devices to use in the classroom. There are plenty of benefits for BYOD programs that go beyond the end-user. Students can use devices they’re already comfortable using and can learn in different, engaging ways.
Schools can maximize their budget and teachers can manage the classroom in a way that elevates education but still gives them control over the learning environment. However, as with anything, there are several questions raised about these types of programs, especially when it comes to safety.
After all, how can parents know if the personal information on their child’s device is kept secure? How can IT teams ensure that user data and devices are safe?
That’s why Apple released the new User Enrollment. In this article, we’ll go over what User Enrollment is and what it means for you and your end-users.
It’s Apple’s new privacy revolution. User Enrollment was designed for BYOD programs to protect user privacy on Apple devices. It also provides IT teams with the necessary tools that help them ensure security for both end-users and the devices.
With User Enrollment, users can rest assured that their personal information is not being accessed by anyone and instead puts their safety first. This means that parents, teachers, and students don’t have to worry. But how does it work?
With this new feature, IT admins won’t have access to the entire Apple device, instead they can use MDM solutions to manage the parts that give students and teachers an enjoyable BYOD experience in the classroom.
User Enrollment separates personal data and automatically creates an additional encrypted volume associated with a Managed Apple ID created by the educational institution using Apple School Manager portal. This is where all the device management will occur, and it will contain any configurations, apps and data necessary for the educational environment.
