University of Delhi is development to digitise presence recording system from the 2018-19 academic session. The app-based system will tolerate students to track attendance in real time instead of getting to know at the end of the term.
The university is also scheduling to help/counsel students if they go missing from classes for a long time so that they can overpass the gap. The initiative is at beta testing phase at four colleges and School of Journalism.
“In arrange to bring transparency and above all to help students so that they don’t fall short of audience, due to which they would have to do again a complete academic session, the app-based online presence system is being planned. confidently we will have a good experience in the pilot run to scale it to the rest of the colleges and all undergraduate courses,” said professor Yogesh Tyagi, DU vice chancellor.
There are a few colleges which went digital in their management of student attendance and other activities. The university too is now planning the same to calculate attendance of students and teachers “to improve accountability.”
As per the plan, attendance of each class will be recorded by the teacher on the mobile application and students will be able to track it. Each year a large number of students find themselves short of attendance and are not allowed to take the exam.
“This system would help the students know the exact status and the number of classes they need to attend to have the minimum attendance every day,” said an exam branch official, adding, “we get quite a few students every semester who miss the minimum attendance marginally. Some even claim that in quite a few classes they were not marked present. This kind of errors will be eliminated through this system.”
The colleges where the beta testing is under way include Deen Dayal Upadhyay, Lakshmibai, Shivaji and Aryabhatta. They have been asked to test the app by implementing it in their day-to-day functioning and give the feedback to the university.
