Education Configuration device policy

The Education Configuration device policy defines:

  • The Apple Classroom app settings for instructor devices.

  • The certificates used to perform client authentication between instructor and student devices.

When you choose a class in this policy, the Endpoint Management console fills in the instructors and students from your Apple School Manager configuration. Create one policy if the Apple Classroom app settings in this policy are the same for all classes.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.

  • Allow students to change screen observation permission: If On, students enrolled in managed classes can choose whether to allow their teacher to observe their device screens. Default is Off.

To edit class information in the policy

You can add a description to a class (the “Display name” in the Classroom app). You can also add or remove instructors and students. Endpoint Management doesn’t save such changes to your Apple School Manager account. For more information, see “Manage instructor, student, and class data” in Integrate with Apple Education features.

Mouse over the Add column for the class you want to edit and then click the pencil icon.
