mobile device management (MDM) software
As schools continue to adopt numerous electronic devices to enhance digital learning, they are also faced with the challenging task of managing them. Using Impero Edlink, IT teams are afforded an array of tools to control student-owned and school-owned mobile devices by managing access to content and enabling/disabling settings, as per a school’s requirements and acceptable use policies.
A flexible cloud-based solution, Impero EdLink simplifies the configuration and management of mobile devices for IT teams, while ensuring teaching and safeguarding staff have access to Impero Education Pro’s comprehensive classroom control and online safety tools to keep students focused and protected when using mobile devices. This centralised approach to MDM serves to keep students protected from the myriad risks of working online when using mobile devices to enable learning.
SSID, GPS and Beacon technologies allow schools to control device applications and settings, while Geolocation functionality helps to quickly locate and recover lost or stolen devices.
time and age-based settings
Establish controls based on times of day and across year groups, ensuring age-appropriate content can only be accessed by the relevant pupil group when allowed.
app blocking and provisioning
Install or update applications on all devices in bulk, saving valuable time.
associate devices with users
Simplify reporting by associating devices with user accounts (making it easier to identify who’s who) and viewing data in a real-time dashboard.
bulk control device settings
Change device configuration, such as enabling/disabling the camera, enforcing safe search, hiding the user’s location or forcing devices to run in single application mode.
Deliver granular reports on online activity and device usage, and view data (such as device history or non-syncing devices) via a real-time dashboard.
Basic keyword detection and internet filtering. For advanced in-school online safety functionality, Impero EdLink should be used in conjunction with Impero Education Pro.
create catalogue applications
Create a catalogue of applications, books and media, which students can download to their device when required. Provide a broad range of resources for students without enforcing the installation, without taking up valuable storage space.
deploy iOS updates
Access a comprehensive view of all iOS devices (which require an iOS update) within the console and enforce mass installation.
Enable home-owned devices to be utilised in school, with the access and configuration allowed by the school network.
Centralise the configuration and management of mobile devices, making it simpler to set up, control and update devices or content when required.
Protect students from online risks when using mobile devices by controlling access to applications and internet-based content.
Apply different user profiles depending on whether a device is in or out of school and locate devices quickly if required.
Monitor and manage mobile devices across the network with access to real-time updates on the status of devices.
enhance mobile learning
Monitor and manage mobile devices across the school site, with access to real-time updates on the status of devices, to facilitate an efficient mobile learning environment.
