The school has implemented a new Bring Your Own device technical service called BYOxLink.
Parents/Carers of 2021 Year 7 Students will be emailed logon details to allow for device self-enrolment at home during the 2020/21 school holidays.
BYOxLink service allows students to securely access the IT network, school email and mobile learning applications on their own devices. It provides seamless access to digital learning resources between school and home.
The department has selected Microsoft Intune as its mobile device management (MDM) tool. One-to-one devices in schools that use BYOxLink need to enrol into the Microsoft Intune Company Portal (Intune). Intune allows the department to distribute a wireless network profile and curriculum related applications to student's BYO devices.
School staff can only access school information through Intune and cannot:
- see personal information
- monitor what happens on the device
- track or locate the device
- see information on installed personal applications (other than school applications)
- uninstall applications, including personal ones.
The links on the right hand side are Intune installation guides for Windows, iOS and Macintosh devices. Students may only use the Wi-Fi network called 'EQNET', or whilst enroling - 'EQGUEST'.
Parents may contact email@example.com or phone the IT Department if they have any questions.
