    RFID Reduces Class Skipping 

    ScholarChip, a provider of smart ID solutions for schools, has updated its classroom attendance solution to meet new state mandates, which require schools to actually track the time a student is present in class.

    Its automated student time and attendance reporting, also known as ASTAR, is ScholarChip’s latest version of its classroom attendance service and provides accurate to-the-minute reporting of a student’s attendance.

    The time a student spends in class is now part of a teacher’s performance review. Without automation, these mandates are difficult and expensive to implement. ScholarChip automates the collection of this classroom data and supports integration with student information systems.

    When students enter a classroom which registers the student’s attendance, they need to tap their contactless ID cards on a reader. They also need to tap when they leave the classroom and tap again when re-entering the classroom. The time a student is absent from class is recorded.

    There are three platforms supporting ASTAR: a browser-based service, a mobile Android app available for use with NFC-enable tablets and smartphones, and a platform designed to operate with a wall-mounted smart card reader inside a classroom.

    NFC Coming to Spanish University 

    Spanish-university-NFC-rfid-blogNFC is coming into the University Católica of Murcia, located in southeastern Spain, for physical access, payments and attendance. SALTO Systems, Banco Santander, Vodafone, Gemalto and the public local government have teamed up for the project.

    All staff and over 20,000 students at the university will take part in the eight-month project, and use NFC-enabled services to access all university buildings including laboratories, classrooms, gym, library, as well as the parking areas.

    The school has deployed a campus-wide contactless solution, which enables the university to integrate all its physical security and management needs, through SALTO Systems’ wire-free networked stand-alone locks, for access control.

    The university has produced a video showing a student using his NFC-enabled handset to check bus arrival, attendance to class, access to lab, enter a school recreation facility and check out a bicycle.

    Besides, the pilot also includes additional services using NFC and data-on-SIM based technology to store student academic profiles, university accreditation, data use on campus and public transportation services. The latter includes both local buses and a bicycle rental service where users can load funds onto their mobile phones via a network of payment machines and kiosks.
