Digitalisation in education is making great strides forward. Mobile devices, apps and online content will soon become an indispensable part of education. Relution for Education supports you in the introduction and administration of tablets as well as their apps and accesses for a digital classroom.
Relution for Education is a tablet management platform especially for schools and teaching companies, which offers an intuitive interface as well as a simple operation for the administration, protection and configuration of tablet inventory in school operations. It enables a clear distribution of roles between students, teachers and IT while complying with the highest data security standards, such as the European Data Protection Directive. The school MDM solution is developed and operated in Germany - optionally as a cloud solution, for installation in the school or at the school authority.
Relution for Eduction helps educational institutions and authorities to provide an efficient IT infrastructure for mobile devices. This enables students and teachers to access modern learning apps and multimedia content at any time. Administrators can also configure policies that are monitored in real time - for example, restrict the use of certain apps.
In the event of an error, such as the accidental deletion of an app or a forgotten password, you can quickly and easily intervene from a central location and correct the error. As a result, investments in modern educational measures are better used, administrative costs are reduced and efficiency increases. Together with its partners, Relution offers a mature, multi-tenant capable solution with which mobile devices for individual classes, schools or even entire school districts can be easily managed.
Depending on the operating system of the tablet (Apple iOS, Google Android), different features are available. Apple devices have a classroom app that allows the teacher to access specific content on the tablets and, if necessary, to restrict and monitor the student's tablets accordingly. This means that tablets can not only be correctly configured at school, but also controlled during use.

The latest feature is the so-called Relution Shared Device Mode. With this new mode, iPads can be used safely and without hesitation by several students. Each student gets their own app selection, whereby device-specific configurations apply to all users. In contrast to Apple's "Shared iPad Mode", Relution offers the unique advantage that it does not require Managed Apple IDs and is therefore 100% data protection compliant. A further advantage is that the Relution Shared Device mode can be switched on and off by policy, so that e.g. student-owned tablets can be functionally severely restricted during lessons or for exams, while they offer the full range of functions outside of school.

In addition to Apple Classroom, Relution offers teachers the ability to prepare lessons and interact with students' iPads in class. The teacher can prepare lesson profiles with available apps, links and functions in the Relution teacher console in his app on the iPad. At the beginning of the lesson, for the duration of the lesson, all settings are immediately applied to the student devices and the lesson can begin.
Relution offers a Files functionality containing SMB and WebDAV connections to provide any file shares as a native file location in iOS. This feature is automatically configured on the devices via Relution policy or can be manually configured in the Relution app so that the student can’t go wrong. The file shares are available in every iOS app that supports this storage concept.
Once all tablets are enrolled and configured by policy, Relution automatically monitors the devices and - if desired - reports detected problems to the administrator. The administrator's only task is to intervene in the event of errors or changes in requirements. This means that the administration effort in daily operations is low and school operations are not impaired.
Using the inventory view in the Relution Portal, the administrator can get a
quick overview of the devices managed by him, visualizing the status of each
device with a simple traffic light logic: Green means "everything is ok",
red indicates a problem. In addition, a detailed view is available for each
device, which provides further information up to the operating system
version, the battery charge status and the memory consumption.
Part of the Relution system is also its own app store, which works in principle just
like the well-known public stores of Google and Apple. Own apps can be uploaded here and
made available to the users. The Relution app serves as an App Store client. A
user-based authorization system can be used to control who gets which apps.
