Ian Dave C. Invierno, Rizza D.C. Mercado


Monitoring students’ attendance in large classes can be very tedious. However, technologies today can be used to simplify this task so as to convert the time spent in attendance checking to learning.

The system is a stand-alone application which also helps manage the attendance record of students at a relatively low cost.
