Apple's current iOS-exclusive program

Apple’s current iOS-exclusive program

Apple has informed Mac developers that it is preparing to launch the ability for educational institutions and developers to purchase apps from the Mac App Store in volume for a discount. The upcoming feature was announced in an email:

We’re pleased to announce that Mac apps will soon be eligible to participate in the Volume Purchase Program for Business and Education. The Volume Purchase Program allows businesses or educational institutions to purchase multiple copies of your app at once.

You may also offer a discount to educational institutions for multiple purchases. If you choose to offer a volume discount for an app, institutions that purchase 20 or more copies of that app in a single order will receive a 50-percent discount.

Your existing Mac apps will not be automatically enrolled in the discount for educational institutions. If you would like to offer your existing Mac apps at a discount for the Educational Volume Purchase Program, check “Discount for Educational Institutions” in the Rights and Pricing section of the Manage Your Apps module on iTunes Connect.

For orders of 20 copies, a discount of 50% to the total order will be applied. This option will not be enabled for developers automatically, but the app sellers will need to enable the feature in iTunes Connect.

Apple launched volume purchase functionality for iOS applications in 2011.

      Years 7–9 to experiment with geo-location and video journaling; and Years 10–13 to create advanced music and art.Administrators, teachers and parents at Punahou believe that the Mac has transformed the curriculum, extending the school’s long history of innovative excellence. It has made teachers become even more efficient facilitators of learning. And it helps keep students more engaged and makes them more capable of expressing their learning than ever before.

  6. Since one of the goals of the technology integration initiative at Punahou is to put the right device in a student’s hand for any given learning opportunity, the school has also introduced iPod touch for student activities like making real-world measurements on field trips. And Punahou students at all levels are using iPad with specific apps to extend their learning: young children use iPad to practise letters and numbers; Year 5s to design and manage virtual cities; Years 7–9 to experiment with geo-location and video journaling; and Years 10–13 to create advanced music and art.Administrators, teachers and parents at Punahou believe that the Mac has transformed the curriculum, extending the school’s long history of innovative excellence.
