Abstract
Digitalisation is the last revolution for our industry. Hence, it does not impact only this sector of activity but also all parts of our society, such as the education system. The digitalisation of education had started by using media content, and with the democratisation of personal computers inside classrooms. However, it impacts the learning process, changing methods, and by requiring new skills. This changing process follows the evolution of technologies; and nowadays, a majority of students and teachers own mobile devices. They are a common tool which is used continuously in our daily life. The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the potential of mobile devices to enhance the learning methods. Specifically, when using a huge number of devices, i.e., one per end-user, it becomes necessary to manage them to provide for each user the minimum requirement setup. Therefore, Mobile Device Management can be adapted to provide the initialization and maintenance of a whole fleet of devices. Thus, it becomes easier to manage installed applications and share course contents to all devices simultaneously. These devices can be either personal or shared by the school.
