Finance


Rising costs and tight budgets have made it more difficult than ever before to invest in new technologies. MyLearn is an innovative and exciting way to bring technology to the classroom that collects everything you need into a low cost, monthly subscription plan. Good financial planning and a hardware refresh plan are key parts of a successful deployment. MCC can provide a range of fully compliant leasing and subscription options for education.




Automated Device Enrollment


Through the use of Apple’s latest tools for large scale device deployment, MCC will support and assist the school by utilising Apple’s Automated Device Enrollment (ADE). ADE offers an efficient way to approach device setup and provisioning. Like all Apple products, ADE is focused on delivering world classuser experience. As soon as a new device is switched on for the first time, ADE streamlines the activation process and offers automatic device enrolment and configuration. This means that IT staff don’t need to touch the devices in advance of a deployment of this scale. A management payload is prepared in advance and this is automatically deployed as soon as new devices are switched on by students. ADE is available to organisations who purchase iPad, iPhone, or Mac directly from MCC. MCC’s Apple ADE Reseller ID is 6F2EA0.




Mobile Device Management


MCC works with a range of MDM providers, including Jamf School and Lightspeed. These platforms allow for greater security, control of institutional devices and can even be utilised by parents to control devices when students are using them at home. MCC will make recommendations on which provider would be right for your deployment.




Management of App Purchases


Purchasing content in bulk for iPad and Mac is easier than ever. With the Apps and Books area in Apple School Manager, you can; search for content, purchase licences, and instantly view important information about your accpount, all in one place. Using MDM, you can assign the apps you purchase to specific devices or users. When a user or device no longer needs an app, you can use MDM to revoke and re-assign it to a different user or device. MCC can process school purchase orders for Apple Apps & Books credit if required. This credit can then be used to buy paid apps for use on school devices.




Recycling


Schools across the country are faced with the challenge of what to do with older technology which has become less effective at meeting teaching and learning goals. A lot of this technology has no value after time and schools need to manage disposal of their devices, sometimes at a cost. An important part of any deployment is sustainability. MCC offer flexible options to refresh and upgrade existing devices and IT equipment. MCC can offset the cost of the new devices required by recycling the school’s existing iPads at full and fair market value.





Apple Training


Apple Professional Learning programmes run by MCC are delivered by Apple certified teachers with experience of leadership and learning in schools. Apple Professional Learning is a comprehensive training pogramme that encompasses everything from strategic planning to planning for financial sustainability for your learning programme. MCC can also provide Apple-focused technical training and mentoring for IT professionals at all levels of familiarity with iOS and Mac OS.




Set-up of Managed Apple IDs


Managed Apple IDs are a variation of Apple ID that gives students access to iCloud, iTunes U, and Shared iPad. School staff can also manage the controls for this. Apple School Manager lets you automatically create Managed Apple IDs, for all students and staff either by connecting to your schools directory, or by importing your data manually. Managed Apple IDs are owned and assigned by your institution, you can easily reset passwords, audit accounts, and define roles for everyone in the school.




Deployment of Shared iPad


Shared iPad enables schools to share devices between students while still providing a personalised experience. Before class begins, teachers can assign any student any shared iPad. Students know which devices to use because their names are on the lock screens and they can access their personal content using a password or easy-to-remember four-digit PIN. Because a local copy of their data is stored on this device, after students log in, their homework, apps and assignments are exactly as they left them. So teachers and technology managers won’t lose time backing up or wiping data between classes.




Wifi and Infrastructure


Designing the infrastructure that supports the learning experience is vitally important, and we work with schools to bring that to life. This ranges from the implementation of effective and efficient wireless networks to the deployment of devices that are easy to use, manage and maintain, both within the classroom and away from it. We can survey your current Wi-Fi network and connection to make sure that the potentially large number of new devices will be able to connect to your network rapidly and effectively. This ensures you are recieving the best possible experience for each and every learner. We will also monitor and outline any improvements that should be considered and advise on implementation. MCC can also setup servers to support your infrastructure, integrating a range of complementary cloud and storage solutions should they be required. Services can include Apple’s innovative caching server which, reduces your school’s bandwidth requirements when deploying large numbers of Apple devices.




Insurance


MCC offers a fully underwritten policy with options to protect against damage, theft and fire. This is all in addition to an industry standard hardware warranty. Your equipment can be covered against accidental damage and theft. Our policies cover incidents that take place in a car, at home or in any other location – including temporary visits outside the UK.
