New devices to record student attendance
A large number of new devices have been installed across two of our campuses to record student attendance.
We have installed 131 devices in 90 spaces across the City Campus and Mount Pleasant Campus and they will go live on Monday 18 November.
The devices are fitted in accessible places for students to tap their ID card to confirm their attendance.
They have been installed in places including our large lecture spaces, and prominent classrooms / IT suites in Byrom Street, Henry Cotton Building, Redmonds Building, John Foster Building and the Marybone Lecture Theatre.
We have put together a short video which demonstrates how easy and convenient the new process is. It will mean teaching staff will no longer need to pass around tablets or laptops.
It has been agreed that students attending back-to-back sessions will need to tap into both sessions.
We will be looking to expand the locations in the new year and we would also welcome feedback on the new devices.
