The Jigsaw24 guide to enrolling in Apple School Manager

The Jigsaw24 guide to enrolling in Apple School Manager

As you many have heard, Apple now offer an online management service for your iPad deployment. Known as Apple School Manager, it’s a free service that hooks into your mobile device management (MDM) solution to provide exciting new functions, and replaces two Apple solutions you may already be using: Volume Purchase Programme (VPP) and Device Enrolment Programme (DEP).

Depending on whether you’re using either, both or neither of these services, the route to enrol in Apple School Manager is slightly different. It’s important to be absolutely certain whether you’re using VPP, DEP, both or neither before you begin your upgrade, as any forgotten VPP and DEP accounts cannot be merged into School Manager at a later date. If you’re not sure which group you fall into, give us a call and we’ll help you work it out. If you’re certain you know which accounts you use, here’s how to upgrade.

What are the changes?

The Volume Purchase Programme (Apple’s bulk app purchasing portal – a kind of App Store for schools) and Device Enrolment Programme (a much faster way to set up iPads than the original method of using a Mac with Configurator software on it) have merged together into Apple School Manager (ASM). Using ASM, you will also be able to assign roles for students and staff members, and also create Managed Apple IDs for everyone very easily.

If you don’t have a VPP or DEP account

If you’re new to Apple’s Deployment Programmes and don’t have an account, other than perhaps a standard iTunes Apple ID, then the process is simple:

1. Go to the Apple School Manager portal.

2. Click the ‘Enrol your institution now’ link at the bottom of the log in window.

3. On the next screen, fill in all of the fields and click ‘Continue’.

4. If you are looking after this application for your school, add your own contact details in section two. If this is not your job, enter the details of the person who will be looking after the iPad deployment.

5. Section three asks for the contact details of someone who can verify that you have the authority to apply to join Apple School Manager, and who can sign the terms and conditions once the application is processed – this is typically your headteacher. If you are the headteacher, it might be best to fill out section two with someone else’s details – an office manager, business manager or IT coordinator, perhaps.

6. Submit the application and wait for Apple to contact both of you. Please be sure to check for emails regularly. If Apple email and you don’t respond, it can cause long delays.

If you already have a DEP account but not VPP

First of all, please check very carefully before doing anything. Not to labour a point, but it’s very rare indeed that a school would have DEP but not VPP (although not impossible). If you are absolutely sure you’re using DEP without VPP, then log into the Apple School Manager portal and type in your DEP login credentials. Simply follow the instructions there to upgrade.

If you already have a VPP account but not DEP

If you enrolled into VPP before February 2014, your account will need to be modified by Apple before it can be upgraded to an Apple School Manager account. If the account is newer than that, you can upgrade it immediately.

If you’re not sure how old your VPP account is:

1. Go to and see if your VPP login works there.

2. If it does work, open up VPP from there, and you should see the window asking you to go ahead and upgrade.

3. If your login doesn’t work, you need to contact Apple to perform the modification.

To contact Apple, follow the instructions listed under the ‘If your school doesn’t have an existing Apple Deployment Programmes account’ in this support document. Your old VPP account should then be added to Apple’s deployment systems.

If you already have both VPP and DEP accounts

If you have both accounts, you need to work out whether they are both registered as a single institution account at Apple, or separate accounts.

Typically, if you applied for VPP first and it was prior to February 2014, it is likely that the two accounts will be completely separate at Apple, and will need to be merged before you upgrade. If you don’t merge them, there is a risk that your VPP account will get left out when you upgrade from DEP to ASM, and you’ll never be able to merge the two.

To ensure that all existing accounts are consolidated before triggering the upgrade:

1. Firstly, write down all of the account logins which you are aware of, for both VPP and DEP. This includes all programme agents, admins, managers and facilitators. Make sure you know what they all are.

2. Next log into your DEP account at If you are presented with an invitation to upgrade to Apple School Manager, ignore it for now by clicking the X ‘Close’ symbol.

3. Click on Admins in the top left of the window. Only the top level administrator, or ‘Agent’ for the account can see the Admin section, so if you can’t see it you are not the senior administrator.

4. Check the list very carefully. Are all of the logins you have listed there, or are some of them missing?

5. If all of them are listed, including your VPP logins, then both DEP and VPP are included in the Apple Deployment Programme, and you can proceed with the upgrade.

6. If some accounts are missing (typically these will be VPP accounts), then you will need Apple to consolidate them all before you upgrade.

– To get Apple’s assistance to merge your accounts, follow the instructions in this article.

– Head to the ‘If your school has an existing Apple Deployment Programmes account’ section and use the form here to request that Apple merge your accounts.

– On the form, use the email address for the person charged with working with Apple as the contact email, but in the ‘Please tell us more about the issue’ box, give the email address for the main DEP Programme Agent (manager or top level admin) as your DEP login, and then explain that you would like to consolidate the other account or accounts into this main one. List all of the logins which did not show up when you checked in step five above.

– Apple will send an email to the main DEP email address in order to verify that the Programme Manager approves the change, so please keep checking that inbox.

– Apple may need to contact all of the people listed in your accounts. Please remind all contacts to check for emails regularly. If Apple email and you don’t respond it can cause long delays.

7. Once Apple have verified by email that all accounts are consolidated, repeat steps two to six in the previous list to be certain all your logins are showing now.

8. Go ahead with the upgrade once all accounts are together. Log back into your DEP account at and if the Upgrade window fails to pop up, there’s an upgrade option bottom left.

During the upgrade, providing all accounts are merged in this way, Apple confirm that all VPP and DEP tokens, app licences and book licences will be ported into Apple School Manager, which should leave any MDM solution unaffected and fully operational. VPP and DEP accounts will continue to work until the upgrade is actioned by Apple, at which point all previous accounts will be active only through the School Manager portal here.

What if I’m still unsure?

We are recommending that everyone takes advantage of the new functionality offered by Apple School Manager, so if you need help to enrol or to upgrade (as well as MDM options, ways of purchasing apps without a credit card, or anything iPad-related), please do contact your Jigsaw24 Education Manager directly, or get in touch on the details below and we will advise you how to proceed.

Thanks to everyone who made it to Making Impact with iPad

Thanks to everyone who made it to Making Impact with iPad

We held the second in our series of Making Impact with iPad events on 9th February – a day of tutorials, workshops and presentations designed to equip senior leadership teams (SLT) with new ways to use iPad in the classroom.

To everyone who made it down to the Imperial War Museum North, including all the attendees, speakers and fantastic young digital leaders, we wanted to say a huge thank you for making the day so enjoyable! If you missed out, here’s a short roundup of what was covered on the day, and some of your feedback. Make sure you’ve also got our next Making Impact with iPad event in Gateshead on Tuesday 15th March booked in the diary too…

Making Impact with iPad –

The day’s agenda

After opening proceedings, it was over to Apple North West Development Executive Craig Smith, who explained Apple’s vision to redefine teaching using technology, while Mike and I focused on lesson ideas, assessment and feedback tools, and generally how to create impact in the classroom with iPad.

We had a special interactive session which saw a group of Year 5/6 show the delegates how you can make impact in the curriculum, touring the museum and creating video and iBooks as they went!

We then heard how leasing, insurance and parental contribution schemes can help you pay for your iPad deployment (with representatives from QPD and Burnetts on hand for advice) and, as part of a new partnership with Jigsaw24, Dyslexia Action Association also spoke about the work they do to support students with dyslexia and dyspraxia using iPad.

And, of course, we had a range of the latest peripheral tools and accessories to support the curriculum available to check out on the day, including interactive touchscreens.

Success stories

It was great to be able to share some of your success stories. First, we got to hear from Paul Ridgway, teacher at Haslingden High School, and an Apple Distinguished Educator himself, on how Haslingden have been reaping the benefits of iPad. We were also very happy to welcome Andy Brady from Nether Alderley Primary School and his year 5 and 6 digital leaders, showcasing what they’ve been doing with iBooks, as well as the ‘iGeniuses’ Luke and Ellie from Barrow Hill Primary School.

Your feedback

So thanks again to everyone who came along to our latest Making Impact with iPad event. We had a great day, and are very happy that you all found it interesting and useful!


Couldn’t make it to Manchester? Our next Making Impact with iPad event is on Tuesday 15th March at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead. Book your free place now!

Device-assignable apps: How to migrate managed codes

Device-assignable apps: How to migrate managed codes

Many schools are now moving from distributing apps using Apple Configurator managed codes to managed distribution in iOS 9 via their chosen mobile device management (MDM) solution. Here’s how to do it… 

One of the first steps in migrating is to check if existing apps are ‘device-assignable’ in the VPP store. If you need to check an individual app, you have to browse the VPP store (not the iTunes links). Just scroll down to the ‘Compatibility’ section of the app description and you’ll see it as in the image below:


All the Apple iOS apps (GarageBand, iMovie, Pages, Keynote, Numbers) and the Microsoft Office apps for iOS (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) are device-assignable. We’re yet to find an app we use day to day that isn’t device-assignable, but it’s something that developers now need to bear in mind, so definitely worth checking with any apps you use. Here’s a list of some of the most common classroom apps we use that we have checked are device-assignable:

Expression of ideas
– iMovie
Collaboration and sharing
– Showbie
– Popplet
– Padlet
Rich content sharing
– Aurasma

Education app of the week: Videon for iPad

Education app of the week: Videon for iPad

When you’re using a microphone for video, you really need audio metering to check that your mic is working. The iPad Camera app doesn’t have that, so I looked in to pro video camera apps and came across Videon for iPad.

What is Videon for iPad?

Videon (Lucky Clan, £3.99) is a video camera app that helps you create professional quality video all within one app – from capture to editing to viewing. If you’re using a tripod and microphone along with iPad to record video in the classroom, you’ll find it much better than Apple’s built-in Camera app, with tons of easy to use features to enhance your video and workflow. Video can be saved to the Camera Roll on iPad, but also saved into the app itself, where you can edit and add effects before saving to your Camera Roll.


How can it benefit the classroom?

Just some of those features that will really benefit your in-class video include: being able to set a point for the camera to focus on and a different one to calculate exposure (very useful!); a really smooth zoom function with an on-screen control; optional audio meters which you can turn on if you use an external mic (essential for knowing if your mic is picking up audio); and lock buttons for exposure, focus and white balance.

What’s the best feature?

I really like the comprehensive editing functionality, which comes with some nice vintage effects like colour degradation, flicker and dust, grain etc, and also resizing, rotating, straightening and more very unusual and useful tricks you don’t even get in iMovie. You can even edit together multiple clips within the app as well. Teachers have often told me that their videos end up upside down. Not any more!

Where can I get it?

You can purchase Videon (Lucky Clan, £3.99) from the App Store on iPad or from iTunes. Even though Apple’s iMovie is a slick video editor which you can get for free with a new iPad, Videon is a great alternative to the Camera app, and it also comes with plenty of professional and different features that make capturing, editing and viewing video quick and easy.

7 things you need to know about DEP

7 things you need to know about DEP

Ready to start enrolling devices? Our reseller ID is 2287450. Need a little more information? Here are seven things you need to know about Apple’s latest initiative…

1. It stands for Device Enrolment Programme.

It is, not surprisingly, a new programme that enrols new devices onto your system automatically, without your IT team having to get their hands dirty.

2. Enrolment is not the same as management.

The technology behind DEP doesn’t replace a Mobile Device Management system (MDM). You need to have a separate MDM solution to decide which apps should be on devices and what content students who’ll be using them should be able to access.

Popular MDM systems among schools include Lightspeed and JAMF Software’s Casper Suite. Once you have your MDM system in place, DEP puts your new devices into it automatically. (There’s a more detailed explanation here, if you want the technical bits, or you can take a look at Apple’s official guide.)

3. It’s free to use.

There’s no charge for using DEP but you do have to have an MDM solution in place for it to work, and alas, the good ones are not free. If you don’t have a device management solution in place, give our team a call to go through your options.

4. It applies to any kind of Apple device.

Desktops, notebooks, iPad, iPod touch and iPhone can all be enrolled in DEP, as long as they were purchased after March 2011 and from an Apple Authorised Reseller (like us). To enrol devices you already own into DEP, you need to associate them with the reseller ID of the company you bought them from – if that’s us, our ID is 2287450.

5. You can create multiple profiles.

So different profiles can be installed on desktops and iPad, or on devices intended for students and teachers – and they’ll all be applied automatically as soon as the device is turned on.

6. You can’t have devices on this and in Apple Configurator.

If you’re already using Apple Configurator to set up your devices, you can transition to DEP by wiping the devices and re-enrolling them. However, once a device is registered on DEP, you can no longer supervise it using Apple Configurator, as Apple don’t allow one device to be registered in both systems. If it’s easier for you, you can enrol only new devices via DEP, but still manage them through MDM. Just drop us a line to find out how.

7. It should not affect your Volume Purchase Programme (VPP) purchases.

Apple added a new managed distribution option to their Volume Purchasing Programme a while ago. With MDM you can now push apps out wirelessly without ever needing to type in a password on the iPad. Ask us to explain managed app distribution – the best way by far to deploy your apps.

We’ve got a more detailed explanation of DEP here or you can download the official Apple guide here. For more information, call 03332 409 333 or email For all the latest news and FAQs, follow @Jigsaw24Edu on Twitter or ‘Like’ us on Facebook

The 6 Waves Gold audio plug-ins I couldn’t live without

The 6 Waves Gold audio plug-ins I couldn’t live without

These days, most DAW packages come with enough built-in plug-ins and instruments to get you through a mix or a songwriting session comfortably, and to produce something pretty good. But what if you want to squeeze something a bit more professional sounding or just plain different out of your software? Or if your favourite DAW doesn’t have the effect you need?

Then you should look to a package of plug-ins like the fantastic Waves Gold Bundle. I’m a long term Apple Logic user (I bought Logic for Atari ST when it first appeared and have been using it on every computer I’ve owned ever since!), and I bought the Waves Gold Bundle many years ago after falling in love with a couple of the plug-ins.

Waves Gold Bundle on Jigsaw24

Here are my favourites:

Compressors. You get no fewer than five compressors in Waves Gold, plus mastering dynamic effects. Renaissance Compressor is my go-to modeller for optical compression, and I use H-Comp for tube compression, particularly on drum sub-mixes.

EQ. You get a graphic and a paragraphic EQ, but my favourites are the V-EQ vintage desk channel emulations. These EQs are warm and lovely, and everything just sounds better with them!

PAZ Analyser. Proper metering. I always have this across my stereo output when I’m mastering, giving master frequency graph, phase correlation, peak and RMS metering. If you’re mixing for broadcast, this superb plug-in is pretty vital.

L1 Ultramaximizer. This is the mastering plug-in for adding loudness to a demo mix or radio version of a track. Used appropriately, this will fatten any mix, or just catch stray peaks before they clip. I’m not a huge fan of loudness for loudness’s sake, but I do love L1.

Enigma. A modulation effect like no other I’ve ever used. A combination of phasing, flanging, comb filter and LFO mod capable of sounding very lush or very psychedelic. It’s far more interesting than standard DAW mod effects.

Doubler. Basically it’s Automatic Double Tracking (ADT) and it’s one of the best out there. Very simple to use and very natural sounding, my backing vocals generally get a dose of this one.

There’s so much more in Waves than I can cover here. Chorus, flanging, delay, stereo imaging, guitar amps and pedals… it’s a huge bundle. But one thing is common to all of the plug-ins – the quality and tonal detail is exceptional in every single one of them. I couldn’t do without my Waves and I really do use them on every mix I create.

– The Waves Gold Bundle collection is available to buy now from Jigsaw24, and is currently on sale for just £165 ex VAT (an incredible 60% saving on the normal £449 ex VAT list price!). This offer is only available while stocks last though, so grab your Waves Gold Bundle now!

Education app of the week: bossjock studio for iPad

Education app of the week: bossjock studio for iPad

Podcasting is a great way to get students working together on projects and using digital media to deliver them. And with this week’s top iPad app, they’re fantastically easy to create too. Find out why we’re raving about bossjock studio for podcasting…

What is bossjock studio?

bossjock studio (the bossjocks, £6.99) is a pretty amazing little app that lets you create rich audio podcasts without all the usual kit. You can preload a bank of cartridge buttons or ‘Carts’ with recorded material like jingles, songs, idents and sound effects, then trigger them while you’re recording your voice. A microphone button with automatic audio ducking also lowers the volume of what’s playing so you can talk over any audio. Effectively, it’s a radio broadcast console all contained within iPad, letting anyone instantly become a radio DJ.

How can it benefit the classroom?

Podcasting can be used in a wide range of subjects for presenting projects. Usually, you would need at least a laptop running audio software such as GarageBand along with a decent microphone to put together a podcast, but bossjock studio gives you all the functionality of those kind of programs directly within the app (we’d still recommend an external mic rather than using iPad’s built-in one though). It’s also very easy to share the results for assessment and feedback – once recorded, you can export it as .mp3, .m4a, .wav or .aiff in mono or stereo, then share via Dropbox, FTP and email, or even upload it to your school’s SoundCloud account or the iTunes podcast library.

What’s the best feature?

The most impressive thing about bossjock studio is the way it uses the iPad’s touch functionality. Being able to simply tap one of the 35 cartridge buttons to trigger different audio elements means creating a podcast is incredibly easy and intuitive.

Where can I get it?

Either head to the App Store on your iPad or visit iTunes to download bossjock studio. It’s £6.99, but is also available under Apple’s Volume Purchase Programme, meaning if you buy more than 20 instances, the price drops by 50% to £3.49 each.

Education app of the week: Ubersense for iPad

Education app of the week: Ubersense for iPad

Originally designed for analysing sports performance, we’ve been looking at the Ubersense app for iPad this week and found there are actually a wide range of applications you could use it for in the classroom, from PE to SEN, and with art and design thrown in for good measure. Here’s a bit more on Ubersense…

What is Ubersense?

If you caught one of our previous apps of the week, Coach’s Eye (read the review here), then Ubersense (UberSense, Inc, free) will look quite familiar. It’s a sports analysis app that lets you record video of an athlete’s performance, then add annotations and voiceover, rewind sections, and speed up and slow down specific elements to provide detailed feedback on performance. What’s different about Ubersense is that it’s completely free!

How does it work?

Ubersense lets you either record video using iPad’s built-in front-facing or rear cameras and add instant feedback, or take any existing video from your Camera Roll and start from there. You can preview your videos before you open them up, which is handy if you’ve got many different versions of the same person’s performance and need to find the right one. There’s also an option to label it by certain ‘Techniques’ such as ‘kicking’ for football and so on, tag who’s in it, and name which ‘Athlete’ is featured, making it a bit easier to divide the videos into categories.

Once you’ve got the video you want, you can start adding your feedback. Open up the video and press the record button, then start annotating in realtime (there are shapes, lines, freehand pencils and angle tools to choose from). Ubersense will record everything that you’re saying and doing on screen live – pause, rewind and fast forward specific frames and sections in different speeds using the onscreen jog wheel. You can even compare your recording to previous videos to check progress while you’re recording. When you’re done, Ubersense compresses the video and saves all your annotation, then you can easily email it from within the app using a private link saved on Ubersense’s website, share via social media or save to your Camera Roll or Dropbox for sharing.

How could it benefit the classroom?

While Ubersense is an obvious fit for sports analysis in PE, we can see this being particularly good for SEN. Because you can email results directly from the app, it’s easy to send evidence securely to assessors (and also parents) to demonstrate any progress made. Videos are saved in a secure space where only those who have the link have access to them and can add comments. But really, any subject where pupils need to detail a process or the progression of a project, such as in art and design, could benefit from using Ubersense. If you’ve tried the ShowMe or Explain Everything presentation apps, Ubersense is the natural progression.

Where can I get it?

You can download Ubersense (UberSense, Inc, free) by heading to the App Store on your iPad, or alternatively check it out on iTunes here.

Education app of the week: Frog Dissection for iPad

Education app of the week: Frog Dissection for iPad

Dissection is a great way to get students understanding biology – the mess, however, isn’t so great! But with our app of the week, you can teach the anatomical process and outcomes all with the gloop-free multitouch tactility of iPad. Welcome to Frog Dissection…

What is Frog Dissection?

You can’t say this about many apps, but Frog Dissection (Emantras Inc, £2.49) really does do what it says on the tin. It’s an award-winning app (PeTA’s Mark Twain Ethical Science Award among others) that graphically takes you through the process of dissecting a frog, step by step. It’s not photo-realistic, but it looks really good and is anatomically accurate too, coming with plenty of associated information and highly detailed 3D diagrams of each organ to explore. As well as text instructions, there are also voice prompts through the whole dissection process.

How does it work?

Before you even start, there’s a ‘Wet Lab Process’ function that takes students pictorially through putting on lab coats to washing down and disposing of the specimen afterwards. This is really handy in getting them thinking about the dissection as a wider process. When you actually get to ‘Start Dissection’, the app guides you through each step, giving you glowing hints on where to stick your pins, markers, forceps and scissors, before zooming in on the end frame – a close-up of the internals of the frog’s abdomen. All the organs are labelled, so you just tap on one to reveal more info, and to get a 360 degree model. It’s worth noting that this is a fixed, non-free roaming process, so you can quite happily let your students just get on with it. Once the process has been completed, you can get back to the internal organs bit without having to go through the process, which is handy for revision.

There are a few other interesting navigation tabs on the home screen too – the Human vs Frog feature lets students compare how our respiratory, circulator and digestive systems compare to that of the recently disemboweled amphibian and a Quiz feature lets you test what students have just learned. Then it all gets a bit frog-heavy, with information and videos on different types of frogs.

How could it benefit the classroom?

Frog Dissection is far from cross-curricular, but it is a very strong example of an app that teaches a particular process very well. It’s also fun, mess-free and ultimately saves the lives of frogs while still hitting the learning outcomes you’d get from a real dissection. It’s also infinitely repeatable, so students can go back again and again to learn the information without having to repeat the process. A perfect, very well implemented example of the capabilities of a multitouch device for learning.

How much and where can I get it?

The only downside of Frog Dissection (Emantras Inc) is that it costs £2.49, but as it’s available under Apple’s Volume Purchase Programme, if you buy more than 20 licences, you get a 50% discount making it just £1.24. Head to the App Store or download it from iTunes.
