‚ÄčThe education department has implemented a new Bring Your Own device (BYOx) technical service called BYOxLink.

BYOxLink service allows students to securely access the IT network, printers, 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.

Below are Intune installation guides for Windows, iOS and Macintosh devices. Please ensure that there are no pending Windows updates before starting the process. It is recommended you enrol the device at home using your home Wi-Fi internet connection. If needed, your child may also enrol at school using the guest Wi-Fi service, EQGUEST.

Contact our school IT support if you experience any problems enrolling into Intune. Please note, your child will need to stay logged in for up to 15 minutes after enrolment is completed, to make sure all Intune set-up is complete. Enrolment of a device may take 10-15 minutes.
