Student Attendance Monitoring for the Blended Learning Environment in Universities
The main goal for Digital Attendance Monitoring solutions is to ensure that student engagement is always tracked both online and offline 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 out-of-class events.
Meeting the Needs of Students Across Every Platform
Following the global pandemic, the main goal for Digital Attendance Monitoring solutions is to ensure that student attendance and engagement is still tracked online everywhere 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.
Digital attendance monitoring creates full engagement with the students while tracking their attendance and monitoring involvement in campus life. This system offers students a platform where universities can fully 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.
The Importance of Attendance Monitoring & Student Engagement for Universities
As mentioned, historically, student attendance monitoring has been used mostly in traditional teaching spaces. Upgrading student attendance monitoring will mean that all universities and schools can not only monitor physical in-class attendance but also online and out-of-class events. TDS Student’s enhanced monitoring system is completely custom to each University or Institution’s needs, whether it’s via a Student Portal, Lecturer Portal, wall readers, handheld readers, custom integrations (for student platforms like Blackboard and Moodle) and also the TDS Student app.
Impact of COVID-19 on the college campus
As the face of the regular university and student life has changed with the COVID-19 pandemic, so has attendance monitoring and normal student engagement. Constantly reviewing and updating data capturing technology and academic support software is the best way to maintain regular student attendance monitoring and engagement interactions going forward, post-pandemic.
Student Attendance Re-Engaged for the Post-Pandemic Student Experience
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most educational institutions across the world have had to close, meaning most students will be completing the academic year from home and/or online. Historically, student attendance monitoring has been used mostly in teaching spaces. 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.
How Colleges/Universities Can Improve Online and Offline Monitoring Going Forward
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, there have been significant changes developed 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.
This enhanced monitoring system is completely custom for each University or Institution’s needs, whether it’s via a student or lecturer mobile app, wall readers, handheld readers, and custom integrations (for student platforms like Canvas, Blackboard or Moodle).
Additional Features: TDS Safeguard for Your Student and Staff’s Safety
With TDS Safeguard as an additional feature to the TDS Student Suite, you’re ensuring the protection and safety of your students, staff and admin. Implementing this feature will provide your campus with the appropriate features to prevent against a pandemic and manage occupancy effectively across all institutes. By conducting pre-screening of all students and staff, your institute is enforcing a contactless welcome process, implementing zone occupancy limits and much more. With TDS Safeguard your university or school will be efficiently prepared as an enhanced, post-pandemic environment. Our mission at TDS is to ensure that companies can smoothly operate within the scope of the “new normal”.
Full Protection from Point of Entry
An example of how utilising TDS Safeguard will further protect your institution is with the TDS Safeguard Sanitizing Station, a one-stop station for arriving on-site. This features a ‘swipe in’ reader for capacity management and instructions on proper sanitisation to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus. Now, more than ever, the protection of your students and personnel is necessary when returning to a new normal following the pandemic. With protective measures upon entry, your students will be constantly assured that their safety and sanitisation needs are met while on campus.
