UGA to test class attendance monitoring app for athletes
On April 29, Kathleen Hurlock received an email from Cory Kopaniasz, the director of student-athlete academic counseling at the University of Georgia.
In the email, Kopaniasz informed Hurlock, a graduate instructor in the English department, that UGA’s athletic department will be piloting a new attendance monitoring service in her English 1102 classroom this summer.
According to the email, the service, SpotterEDU, will notify the athletic department of student-athletes’ attendance using a beacon installed in the classroom that connects to an app on students’ phones via Bluetooth.
According to Spotter’s website, beacon technology allows schools to “pinpoint students within a classroom until they leave, providing continuous, reliable and non-invasive attendance.”
