The all-new Schoolwork app lets teachers easily assign anything from worksheets to activities in educational apps, see student progress, and collaborate with students in real time. Complete the steps below to get teachers and students set up with Schoolwork:
1. Enroll in or upgrade to Apple School Manager.
Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal that lets IT administrators manage people, devices, and content. You can provide Managed Apple IDs, set up devices, get apps and books, and empower teachers with tools to create engaging learning experiences—all from one place. Learn how to enroll in or upgrade to Apple School Manager.
2. Create Managed Apple IDs for Teachers and Students using SFTP, SIS, or manually.
Using Apple School Manager, you can quickly create accounts to give students access to Schoolwork and other key Apple services—along with 200GB of free iCloud storage.
Tip: by using the SFTP upload function Jamf School provides, you'll be able to quickly create and update Teachers and Students in Apple School Manager. Learn more about SFTP upload with Jamf School.
3. Set up classes in Apple School Manager.
Classes included in SIS or SFTP connections will automatically create Schoolwork classes for you. You can also create classes in Apple School Manager manually. Schoolwork is automatically updated as students move in and out of classes in Apple School Manager.
4. Get the Schoolwork app in Apps and Books in Apple School Manager.
Apple School Manager and Jamf School work together, so you can get app licenses in bulk. Make sure devices are updated to iOS 11.4 or later, then assign and install Schoolwork on teacher and student devices remotely. Learn more about Apps and Books in Apple School Manager.
5. Enable student progress for your organization in Apple School Manager.
Instructors can see how students are doing on assigned activities in any ClassKit-enabled app when the student progress feature in Schoolwork is enabled. You can still use Schoolwork even if you don’t enable this feature. Tip: Look for the “Works with Schoolwork” badge in the Apps and Books area of Apple School Manager to find ClassKit-enabled apps that support student progress in Schoolwork.
