Join Sean Colins for an in-depth discussion in this video Who will benefit from this course, part of Foundations of Mobile Device Management.
- [Instructor] We all have an inherent curiosity that guides us to new things. As someone who has found an introductory course on mobile device management, I can only assume that you have that inherent curiosity in you. I believe that everyone has that need to know more. But I find that people are far more motivated to learn when something affects them personally. Maybe you're a person who is a student at a university, or an employee at a large company, and you find yourself in possession of a shiny new MacBook Pro, or an iPad, or maybe a brand-new Windows Phone.
But you had to sign off that you agreed to have that device managed before you received it. Maybe you're wondering just what the IT department can do to your device, what they can enable for you or what they can see you do while you use it. Perhaps you work at an IT department now, and you're really happy working as a support analyst, but you want to learn more and advance. Maybe you're an administrator who now has to interact with the MDM admin on the team, and you want to know more about what that MDM admin can do on your network, or what they should be able to do now, but maybe they don't know how.
Another possibility. Are you a leader, a visionary? Are you at the helm of your organization's ship, charting its course? If so, you probably, like any good captain, want to know every bolt that holds that ship together, and you know that mobility and security go hand in hand. You've heard that the security of your team and the entire ship depends on things like mobile device management. By understanding the high-level concepts of MDM and properly setting your own expectations, you'll be better positioned to manage your team of experts as they do the deeply technical work of getting things done.
Whichever of these you happen to be, I'm glad you've found this course, and I know we will learn a lot together.
