Florin-Vasile FRUMOS, Petru-Adrian ISTRIMSCHI
During the last two years, the academic space was under the formidable pressure of online teaching, caused by the pandemic disease spread all around the world. In this context, teachers from colleges and universities tried to adapt teaching methods and strategies for monitoring students’ learning in appropriate ways. Using frequently technological tools or conference apps as Webex or Zoom, teachers discover some useful opportunities and functions of these apps. Students’ attendance on face-to-face academic activities as courses or seminaries were realized by students themselves by writing down the name on a piece of paper. On the other hand, the online apps offer sometimes some technical opportunities to monitor the student attendance through a small but effective program, added to the main application. This represents an elegant and accurate manner to monitor students’ attendance, useful for teachers who adopted it. This article presents a simple, free and accessible online software tool that is useful in monitoring students’ attendance providing a report about the frequency and duration of student participation in online courses conducted through the Webex application.
