Attendance in the palm of your hand
A while back, ProfHacker posted an article on The Attendance App for iOS devices, where Jason Jones gave the program a glowing review. Today I finally got around to downloading the app on my iPad and checking it out for myself. It looks great!
First I created an imaginary class called “Famous People” and added a few names. Then I found photos in Google images to make things a little more interesting. I tried taking attendance and it was a snap.
Here are a few of the program’s features:
- Import a roster from a csv file (at ND you can get this from “Online Photo”)
- Add photos
- Add a custom status, like “Athletic Excuse”
- Copy students from one course to another
- Choose a random student to answer a question
- Enter notes
- Print reports
This YouTube video shows the app working on an iPhone, but it also works on an iPod Touch.
