Attendance Taking

For faculty interested in taking attendance in on-campus courses, ITS has developed a web-based application. Faculty can log into the Attendance App and students can swipe their iCards in a card reader to log attendance for each class session. Please submit an Instructional Technology Request Form to request that a card reader be installed in your classroom (see below for a list of classrooms that already have card readers).

Step-by-step instructions for using the Attendance app are available, or watch the following video.


The app also includes the option to import attendance grades directly into Blackboard. Simply click your name in the upper right corner and choose Settings. Then check to Enable LMS Integration. This will add a column to the Blackboard Grade Center for each day that attendance is taken. Each student who attends that day will earn a point, which is automatically added to Blackboard.

Card readers are currently installed in:
