A quick demonstration how you can manage your student's laptops easily without any 3rd party tool using Microsoft Intune and Microsoft Autopilot. It is a cost-effective solution from just a few devices, up to several hundred allowing you to centralise the deployment and management of laptops, policies, and application installation. No need for VPNs or on premises servers.
This is a cloud native solution, allowing you to manage devices remotely in any circumstance. Microsoft Autopilot adds the convenience of setting up laptops automatically, directly from the manufacturer without having to go first to your IT staff for setup. It is a game changer!
With Microsoft Academic/Education licensing, you get a heavily subsidised pricing, allowing you to use the same enterprise grade technologies at a fraction of the cost.
