Jamf School overview

What is Jamf School?

Jamf School is a mobile device management (MDM) software designed to help educational institutions deploy and manage Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV devices and applications. The application enables educators to restrict certain websites, applications, and camera functionality across students’ devices and lock their devices after sending a custom message.

It offers an application request feature, which allows teachers to request applications from Apple App Store and Jamf School Teacher application and track the status of requests in real-time. Features of Jamf School include user management, an activity dashboard, a drag-and-drop interface, and more. The application also lets administrators perform diagnostics on individual devices and identify system issues. It provides permissions to students for accessing education-related websites and restricts access to unauthorized applications.

The platform facilitates integration with various third-party applications such as Microsoft Azure, Power BI, Google Cloud Identity, and more. Using Jamf School’s classroom management module, teachers can create lesson plans, manage classes, and assess school curriculums.

Jamf School (formerly ZuluDesk) has been a great MDM solution for our school district's needs.

Pros
The price can't be beat. There is a perpetual license option that our district has used for every device we purchase.

Cons
As a district with both Jamf Pro and Jamf School (formerly ZuluDesk) deployed we do miss some of the more advanced data collection features available without custom scripting in Jamf Pro.

Pros
This is a tech coordinators dream! It allows us to push out apps, control settings, update, remote reset. Basically we could become a zero touch institution. I love that we can package our apps and push them out. I also love the one time fee for the lifetime of the device instead of paying a per year fee.

Cons
There is a learning curve but once you get it, it's awesome. Would like to use it to remote into computers (remote screen sharing)

I really enjoy the using Jamf School to manage our school devices. It cost for perpetual licensing makes it a very affordable option for schools. Thank you!

Pros
Ease of use. I like how easy it is to set up profiles. It is also very easy to use VPP with Apple School Manager to push out apps to our devices.

Cons
packaging apps to distribute is a bit time consuming.

All of my interactions with Jamf school have been extremely positive. Always very helpful with minimal wait time for support.

Pros
Once the system is initially configured, the system becomes highly scalable. It is easy to push apps and updates through the interface, which is also very intuitive. In all honesty, the software provides so many features and it is customizable at a very granular level.

Cons
The initial configuration was a bit confusing, however, the support I received was superb in getting the environment correctly configured.
