Salamander for Apple School Manager

Salamander for Apple School Manager is a free utility designed to mirror data from a school’s MIS/SIS system into Apple School Manager. It allows the provisioning of teacher & student accounts as well as classes by transferring relevant data from your MIS/SIS, whatever it is, into Apple’s systems. Save time for your administrators and teachers by automating the creation of your users and classes so that they are ready for your teachers and learners.

Salamander for Apple School Manager supports a number of MIS vendors and allows you to easily configure the data the way you want it. Once the data is uploaded, then Managed Apple IDs are created automatically for you by Apple School Manager enabling the use of iCloud, iTunes U and iPads.

Apple, Apple School Manager, iCloud, iTunes U, iPad, Apple ID are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.

Salamander for Apple School Manager is a standalone Windows utility which runs on a machine inside the school’s network. This ensures that no data leaves your network except that which is passed to Apple School Manager. You can always see exactly what data is or will be transferred by looking at the generated CSV files.

Its 2 main features are:

  1. To connect the MIS/SIS system for the school to generate the CSV Files used by Apple School Manager.
  2. To upload the exported files to Apple School Manager.
