The Volume Purchase Programme has been around for some time, but how many of you knew about it? This surely is great news, right?
In a nutshell, the Volume Purchase Programme for Education makes Apps affordable, when buying in bulk. Yes, this means if you’re a school looking to buy Ibbleobble® Educational Apps, you can at a discounted price!
But how does it work?
If you follow these few simple steps, your school will be set up to purchase and distribute Apps and books in volume. There is a certain criterion you have to adhere to but Apple generally encourages this kind of transaction and participation.
Set Up – After enrolment is complete, you then set up and manage your school’s administrators for the purchasing and distribution of content
Purchase – In the VPP store, search for the content you need. Then enter the quantity and complete the transaction with VPP Credit or a credit card
Distribute – Distribute content to individual users by providing them with redeemable codes on a per-App basis. Or streamline App distribution institution-wide by assigning content directly to users or groups using an MDM solution
And what is a MDM Software?
Mobile device management (MDM) is a type of security software used by a school’s IT department. It’s used to monitor, manage and secure mobile devices that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems being used in the organisation/school.
Here is a small demonstration of how it works, which I hope you find useful.
