Our goal with Intune for Education is simple: Empower IT in schools to take an active role and “conduct” what happens in the classroom by providing teachers the technology they need to create the “music of learning” with students. We’ve listened to IT explain what it means to empower them to conduct learning, and their ongoing needs are pretty straightforward: They need better support fortroubleshooting with the Windows 10 devices managed by Intune for EDU, and they need easierscaling device management for districts or device deployments that are really big and/or widely dispersed.
Today, at theBett Show, we are excited to announce three new capabilities to address these requests which will roll out over the next few months:
Simplified delegationto additional administrators,g.from a district IT to a school IT level.
Configure new settingswith Windows 10 (g.WiFi profiles, Windows Automatic Redeployment and Power Settings).
Insightson devices and users being managed (g.deployment status, audit logs, Windows Defender reports) to ensure IT visibility before technical issues begin to impact learning.
