Very easy-to-use MDM solution

Overall, it has streamlined our iPad management, enough to where I have confidence our technicians can put their hands on the platform and solve issues without needing much further escalation. The UI is very easy on the eyes, and the options available for device management make the day-to-day task of solving issues with devices much easier.

Pros

Very easy to deploy to managed devices, very easy to manage/troubleshoot devices.

Cons

It was a bit of learning curve having everything tied to the serial/device instead of a user/username, at least for the way it is implemented in our district. It can also be frustrating only having the option to contact Jamf School support via the support chat feature, especially when all the CSRs are busy or if you need assistance after hours.

Reasons for choosing Jamf School

Needed something a bit more in-depth, but not as expansive as Jamf Pro (which we also use to manage MacBooks).

Quality Easy to use product

Jamf has completely revitalized how we use our ipads, because we had this structure in place we're able to seamlessly transition to elearning.

Pros

I was able to research, facilitate, and implement this product with no previous MDM experience all while working as a special education teacher.

Cons

I wish to see the jamf teacher capabilities grow.
