Mobile devices are changing education and Lightspeed Systems is changing the way these devices are managed.
Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
Following the beta release of Mobile Manager at ISTE 2012 in June, Lightspeed Systems is pleased to announce the official release of the mobile device management solution. More than 500 schools signed up for the beta program—all recognizing the necessity for a solution developed with their specific needs in mind. After a few months of testing in schools, the Mobile Manager is ready for use in districts committed to developing mobile learning programs focused on successful student outcomes.
Mobile devices are changing education and Lightspeed Systems is changing the way these devices are managed. With direct input from educators, the Lightspeed Mobile Manager is designed for school districts. Hierarchical policy settings, education specific tools, and a user-friendly interface allow IT staff to efficiently manage mobile devices and help educators ensure the devices foster positive learning experiences. The Mobile Manager also features application controls, integration with the Apple Volume Purchasing Plan, remote wiping, and centralized inventory, reporting, updates, and installs—making managing the devices as simple as using them.
Henry Danielson, Director of Technology at Coast Unified School District in California, is excited about using Mobile Manager with his district’s roll-out of more than 400 iPads. “Using mobile Manager from Lightspeed Systems will help ensure CUSD’s mobile learning program is successful,” shares Danielson. “Both our IT staff and teachers can easily and effectively manage the iPads distributed throughout our district, making the transition to mobile learning seamless and maximizing the learning potential of these devices. We were looking for a solution that met our specific needs as a school district and Lightspeed’s Mobile Manager delivered.”
The design, development, and release of Mobile Manager is another example of Lightspeed Systems’ commitment to working together with schools. This solution was built from the ground up with contribution from educators and IT staff—creating a powerful, yet user-friendly, tool specific to the needs of schools. Integrated with the Lightspeed Mobile Filter and My Big Campus, the Lightspeed Mobile Manager makes mobile learning safe while providing students with access to educational resources and collaboration and providing teachers with the ability to easily integrate devices into their lessons.
