Microsoft today announced Intune for Education, a new tier of its existing enterprise application and device management service that’s specifically meant for school. In addition, the company announced that a number of its partners will soon start shipping a wider variety of affordable Windows 10 PCs.
This move comes shortly after Google announced yet another push for its Chromebooks in schools and announced new devices from Acer and Asus that are geared toward students.
With Intune for Education, admin and teachers can more easily manage the PCs they use in their schools and classrooms something that is important because in many schools, teachers have to serve as their own tech support. Intune for Education will allow admins to decide which apps from the Windows Store students and teacher will be able to see and install.
Microsoft Intune for Education is integrated with Office 365 for Education, which features all the classic Microsoft productivity tools to help aid teaching and learning in schools.
