SureMDM Enables Remote Teaching In The Wake Of COVID-19 Pandemic


COVID-19 has led to a rapid shift in how organizations function, most notably in regards to mandatory work-from-home (WFH) policies. Any kind of organization that relies on physical office spaces is being forced to find new ways to stay productive while working remotely. 

One of the most difficult WFH transitions is for schools- where students who have to study from home may have no technology in the home, or have primitive technology that makes teleconferencing difficult. The fact that most school spending focuses on in-person learning only makes matters more complicated. The challenge becomes even more profound for schools that (for religious, ideological, or logistical reasons) do not include technology in everyday instruction- rather than adapting their infrastructure for remote learning, schools need to build an infrastructure from scratch for remote learning and remote teaching

One of the most difficult WFH transitions is for schools- where students who have to study from home may have no technology in the home, or have primitive technology that makes teleconferencing difficult.

One remote learning solution is to provide students with tablets and ask them to teleconference using the tablets, but this can be tricky. If students using school tablets access irrelevant or inappropriate material online, or consume excessive data freely, it can create new problems for schools to handle beyond the remote teaching itself. And this is where 42Gears’ software comes in. 

42Gears has already worked with several institutions to securely keep their remote learning students up-to-date.

Where there are remote teaching challenges to overcome, 42Gears is ready to help. 42Gears has already worked with several institutions to securely keep their remote learning students up-to-date, and anticipates that more will likely ask for help as more and more school districts temporarily ask students to study from home. Licenses of 42Gears’ SureMDM device management software come with several additional products that are valuable for schools: SureLock, and SureFox.

42Gears’ SureLock software is integral to remote learning via tablets, especially if schools would like for tablets to let students virtually attend classes through apps like Zoom. SureLock can configure tablets such that they can connect to Wi-Fi and use Zoom (or a similar application); from there, SureLock can either disable all other functionality or approve a small number of additional applications based on the administrator’s preference.

If schools would like for students to browse the Internet safely, tablets can employ SureFox, 42Gears’ secure browser. In SureFox, administrators can restrict access to specific websites (whitelist websites), block specific websites (blacklist), or block websites by keyword. In this way, students can remain safe and on-task online, even when unsupervised. 

With SureFox, administrators can restrict access to specific websites (whitelist websites), block specific websites (blacklist), or block websites by keyword.

SureMDM features a central console that allows administrators to manage SureLock and SureFox on any device, from anywhere. This means that IT admins can keep everything running smoothly, even when the system is completely decentralized. Importantly, SureMDM’s console has an easy-to-use interface- so if teachers or parents volunteer to serve as administrators, they can do so without needing prior experience or coding knowledge.
