Buy apps in volume for both Mac and iOS through the VPP store. Free apps are also available, so you can provide students and faculty with all the tools they need to enhance learning.
Developers can offer education institutions special pricing on apps through VPP. If a developer has enabled education pricing, institutions receive a 50% discount when purchasing in quantities of 20 or more.
The Volume Purchase Program provides institutions with complete ownership and control of content through mobile device management (MDM) solutions. And users get quick and easy access to apps over the air.
When you buy apps in volume you can distribute content via redeemable codes directly to your users. You also have the option to assign apps using third-party MDM solutions.
Easily distribute apps to users while retaining ownership and control. Invite users to participate, then assign apps using a MDM solution. Apps can be used on all the user’s devices, and when no longer needed reassigned to a different user.
If a student’s device is supervised, you can install apps over the air automatically and without any user interaction. This ensures students get the right apps they need at just the right time.
Once iPad or Mac are deployed, you can distribute apps and content over the air. Updates to iOS and OS X apps and content can be cached locally using Caching Server 2 in OS X Server. This speeds up the download and delivery of content over your institution’s network. Learn more about Caching Server 2
