What apps has the District distributed?

Using our Mobile Device Management (MDM) system, we have been able to send several apps to students iPads over the past couple of weeks. Below are the apps we’ve sent to Northfield High School students to this point:

  • Destiny Questapps - HS
  • Follett Digital Reader
  • Google Drive
  • Haiku Deck
  • iBooks
  • iMovie
  • Notability
  • Overdrive
  • Pearson eText
  • Scan – QR Code Reader
  • Schoology
  • ShowMe Interactive Whiteboard

Our Middle School students have access to:

  • Google Drivemiddleschool
  • iBooks
  • Learn French
  • Merriam-Webster Dictionary
  • Notability
  • Overdrive
  • Quizlet
  • Skyward Mobile App
  • Schoology
  • Scan – QR Code Reader
  • Science Friday
  • Student Clicker (Socrative)

At this point, we’ve only purchased two apps: Notability and iMovie. We have purchased iMovie for Middle School students as well. However, we had some difficulty ‘pushing’ this app to Middle School students due to its large size. In fact, some of you may see an iMovie app icon on your Middle School iPad that didn’t complete the installation process. We’re working with our vendor to develop a resolution to this problem.

We anticipate adding many additional apps as the school year begins.

Remember, tap ‘Install’ when you see a prompt from our servers, signified by ‘lsmdm.com’ similar to the screen shot below.

Northfield High School students will need to enter their Apple ID user name and password after tapping ‘Install.’ Northfield Middle School students do not have to enter a password since they are restricted from downloading their own apps.

If you click ‘Cancel’, do not worry! The MDM will check every so often to see if you have the apps provided by the District and prompt you again.

If you have questions about apps, installing them, or other TransTech related items, please feel free to contact Director of Administrative Services Matt Hillmann at (507) 645-3458 or matt.hillmann@northfieldschools.org.
