Technology assisted attendance taking {inspired by the clicker thread}

A colleague from our Dental School had just referenced using
clickers as an attendance taker. Seems they had thought about making an opening
“question of the day” or “ice breaker” a standard for
each class both as a way of promoting clicker use and taking attendance. I’m
not sure how feasible that is.

 

My question is:

 

Does anyone out there have a technology assisted attendance mechanism
that works for them? The administrative burden and costs of a technology
solution seem obscene when compared to the costs of a low-tech legal pad passed
around at the beginning of each class. However, the faculty here want tech to
do it for them.

We have a web based module in our course management solution.

Its not ideal..

Of course, my idea of injecting rfid tags didn’t go very far..

Tom,What course management system are you using?Our College of Liberal Arts has been piloting a system where the students use their cell phones and a SMS receiving system to tally the results on a website.  Seems that since all of our students have WiFi connected laptops, a web browser based solution might work nice as a clicker substitute for our Law School.

Steve,
I just watched the video intro for ChimeIn and it is pretty cool. Is
anyone at the law school using it?

Re: [teknoids] Technology assisted attendance taking {inspired by the clicker thread}

Steve,

I was referring to our attendance system, we currently do not have a polling system integrated into our cms (though we have our own polling system, so it would only take a few minutes to integrate it)
