An updated version for mac would allow for teachers to manage hundreds of apple ID’s at the same time. Originally, It was released only for iPad in 2016 on ios9. but now it is available on mac as well with beta version launched in June 2018. Now, teachers can control their students iPads through their own mac.
Developer's control: classkit
Just like SiriKit, HomeKit, and HealthKit. Classkit allows developers to add education based features to the app. It allows them to create apps with schoolwork that teachers can use to assign activities and track progress to make reports.
Apple has a new feature in classroom called shared ipad. This allows for group activities on a single ipad. Teachers can use this feature to assign multiple students to a single ipad. When students are instructed to retrieve “their” iPad, they’ll look for the one with their picture on the Lock screen. Tapping on their picture and entering their four-digit pin will pull up their specific homework, apps, and documents.
Teachers can keep watch over what their students are doing by tapping their screen. Tapping the screen allows teachers to view student’s specific screen. The student is also notified through a blue bar that the teacher is currently watching him or her.
If any teacher notices outstanding work that they’d like to share with the class. This too is supported and teachers can display the work on an apple tv through airplay.
