Distributing Jamf Teacher Using Jamf School

You can distribute the Jamf Teacher app by adding the app from the App Store to Jamf School or by purchasing it through Apps and Books in Apple School Manager. For more information, see Distributing Apps Purchased with Apple School Manager and Distributing App Store Apps. If teachers do not see Jamf Teacher on their device after it is distributed, make sure that the settings configured in Organization > Settings > Jamf School Teacher do not conflict with the settings applied to the teacher user account.

Teachers are automatically logged in to Jamf Teacher on devices they are assigned to. If they are not assigned to the device, teachers can log in to Jamf Teacher by using their user account credentials or by navigating to the Jamf Teacher web application. The Jamf Teacher web application URL is the full URL for the Jamf School server followed by “/teacher”. For example: https://schoolname.jamfcloud.com/teacher

Note: When distributing apps, documents, and profiles to teachers, they must be configured to install on-demand to appear on the dashboard. For more information, see Content Distribution Methods and Device Profiles.
