BYOD can be an opportunity to increase student participation, and maybe even improve attention to what's happening in the class by allowing them to use the devices that are such a major part of their lives. But it also presents challenges for school IT staff, who need to manage a wide variety of devices, connect them to the school's applications and deal with security issues.

One way to minimize such challenges is to locate school applications in a central location while providing students and staff with secure, browser-based access from any device. This reduces support headaches by reducing the need for IT staff to install applications on all the devices floating around the school. It also reduces security risks by keeping data and applications separate from students' devices.
