How Universities Will Digitally Monitor Student Attendance Post Pandemic

Student-Post-PandemicFollowing the Covid-19 pandemic, the main goal for Digitally Attendance Monitoring solutions is to ensure that student attendance and engagement is still tracked online everywhere and across all platforms. Upgrading student attendance monitoring will mean that all universities and schools can not only monitor physical in-class attendance but also online and at out-of-class events. 

As students have not been able to physically mark their attendance in their institution, they will now need new ways to digitally track their attendance for student records. This needs to be done so that all students can maintain compliance with legal, educational requirements while also engaging sufficiently with coursework and assignments as regularly as possible. 

What is a Digital Attendance Tracking Solution?

Digital Student Attendance Monitoring is a solution for universities to track their students' attendance, increase engagement and comply with legal, educational requirements. 

This solution offers students a platform where they can monitor and assess their academic progress; empowering them to take ownership of their academic commitments by equipping them with a diverse range of smart and innovative features.

Student Attendance Re-Engaged for the Post-Pandemic Student Experience

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most educational institutes across the world have had to close, meaning most students will be completing the academic year from home and/or online.

Typically, student attendance monitoring has been used solely in lecture halls/classrooms. Due to the changes in physical attendance due to the global restrictions with the coronavirus pandemic, TDS has made significant changes to create a more universal system by monitoring attendance "On-Campus and Online" ensuring students are monitored across every platform outside of the lecture hall/classroom.

Some examples of where Student Attendance can now be Digitally Monitored post-pandemic are:

  • On-campus
  • Online
  • Field trips
  • Excursions
  • Work placements,
  • All outside academic engagement throughout all international campuses.
