For information on an Attendance tool recently developed by the University of Dayton that incorporates many of the features listed below, please go see their github page. https://github.com/UDayton/attendance

Purpose

We are putting together some specifications and designs for a new tool that will track student's attendance. The idea is to have a simple table that lists each day the class meets where a teacher can insert in attendance records for each student.  I've heard there's been some interest in the community for a tool like this and it would be great to get the community involved. I'm hoping to get input from everyone about any ideas or features they'd like to see. Also, any collaboration with design, UI, or internationalization would help a lot.

It's easier marking off 2 or 3 absent students, than 47 or 48 present students (assume 50 students in a class)1) Where classes are going on regularly / in parllel days / on specific dates 2) Where faculty interacts with students directly. For example,  		i)	Faculty teach a class to student through Big Blue Button.  Faculty can have option to integrate with other tools so that faculty don't need to tick attendance for eachone seperatly.  For suppose, Faculty wants make attendance present to students  1) Once they join as part of online class through Big Blue Button. 2) Faculty can view that who visited the course through Statistics tool, so we can say once student clicks on tool then we can make attendance as presence to him.|
