ODU Attendance Management Tool

More Information about this image

Students On-Campus

ITS has developed an automated attendance system that's used in classrooms across campus. This system allows students to check in and check out of each course through the use of a mobile app called ODU Attendance (iOS or Android) or their student ID. The data is added to the Canvas Attendance tool that allows faculty to integrate attendance data with their Canvas Course and Gradebook.


Students

Each time you attend class in one of the classrooms with attendance management (see list below) you should check in and/or out (based on faculty requirements) using a mobile app on your phone or by swiping your student ID card. It's easy:

Swipe your ID card.

  • Pull out your student ID card and swipe in at the device on the wall.
  • Watch the screen to validate that your swipe was successful.

Tap your ID card.

  • Pull out your student ID card and tap the check-in device on the wall.
  • Watch the screen to validate that your tap was successful.

Use the ODU Attendance app.

  • Download ODU Attendance from your Apple or Android app store.
  • Scan a QR code each time you arrive to class.
    Codes are unique to each class session, and will be refreshed and displayed in the room from 7:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

No matter which way students choose to check in, their attendance will be recorded in Canvas. Instructors may decide to factor attendance into the overall class grade in the class.

Student Guide


Instructional Faculty

When students check in, their attendance is recorded in a Canvas tool called ODU Attendance, which allows you to integrate attendance data with your course and gradebook. The data remains in Canvas for as long as the course is there, and if your course is cross-listed/linked, you will see a combined class roster in Canvas.

You can decide what percentage of each class must be attended before a student is considered tardy or absent, and determine how you would like to calculate grades based on attendance. Learn more in the Instructor Guide.

Classrooms With Attendance Hardware

The following academic rooms have attendance management equipment in place for the Fall 2021 semester. As the system continues to expand to meet University needs, users will find some rooms will have both wall units and desktop units, others may only have desktop units. Most rooms will eventually be provisioned with both types of equipment as long as the physical facilities are available to accomplish that. ITS continues to manufacture wall units and anticipates full deployment by mid-semester. For those with desktop units only, attendance will be available through the use of the ODU Attendance Mobile app or through associated course schedule Zoom meetings (if applicable). Those rooms designated with ** are currently provisioned with desktop units only and faculty should plan appropriately.
