Blackboard Attendance is a new cloud product specifically designed to allow for capturing class attendance. The browser interface is easy to use for instructors to quickly view current class attendees and absences, as well as, historical attendance. Students, courses, and enrollments may be easily imported to system. Attendance transaction data may be exported to Learn and/or other external system such as SIS. Accurate attendance data is useful in establishing patterns of successful behavior for early intervention and retention programs. Verified attendance reporting may also be required for some financial assistance programs. Blackboard attendance integrates with Blackboard Transact to provide easy population of student information.
