Student Attendance Through Mobile Devices

Rastogi, Anurag and Gupta, Kirti (2013) Student Attendance Through Mobile Devices. BTech thesis.



Since ages, marking attendance has been one of the most important way to record and track the presence of students in schools, colleges. Attendance marking in different forms has been in use in various organization to record the presence of their human resource. This helps the organization in generating their month-end payroll, and other activities. Such systems may be manual or automated. Biometric-based system, card-based system are some of the examples of automated attendance system. In this project, an attempt has been made to record attendance through mobile devices. The aim of the project is to create an Android mobile application for attendance system that can be used by all teachers for their respective courses. This application fetches the details of the courses allotted to the respective faculty and the students enrolled in the courses from the server using the internet connection and stores it in the mobile database. This application stores the attendance in the mobile internal database and the faculty can view and update the attendance whenever required. At the end of the month, when the faculty is needed to upload the attendance, they can directly upload it from their mobile in the server provided the internet connection is available. This application uses Android application development toolkit. Android is a Linux-based operating system developed for smart phones or tablet computers. It is a stack of software that includes operating system, middleware and libraries and APIs written in C. The Android application is developed in Java-like language using the Android software development kit (SDK). The integrated development environment (IDE) which is officially supported for Android apps development and used in this project is Eclipse, which uses the Android Development Tools (ADT) plugin.
