Automation and Integration Are Key to Simplifying Remote Attendance

Posted by Gretchen Pawloski with Connie Blaszczyk on September 14, 2020

With ServiceRocket's newest Google Classroom add-on, Attendance Taker for Classroom, attendance is marked automatically and reports are generated in one click.   

It’s an understatement to say COVID-19 has changed our lives. This global pandemic has upended daily routines and forced us to adopt new ways of working. If you’re a teacher or school administrator, that adaptation has been massive as schools move from in-person to remote learning. You’ve had to quickly pivot your curriculum to online platforms like Google Classroom. And as any learning professional knows, that is no small task.

One thing that hasn’t changed in education is the need for accurate attendance records. In fact, it’s more important than ever. Yet this once simple task is far from straightforward in a remote learning environment. Given this new responsibility, many students falter. Some forget to sign in; others struggle to use various methods from class to class. The resulting inaccurate attendance reports can negatively impact your students and school. 

Here at ServiceRocket, we heard firsthand from teachers about the need for more accurate attendance records for live or pre-recorded classes and assignments. As a leader in building global learning solutions for nearly 20 years, we knew there was a better way. That’s why we’re excited to bring you Attendance Taker for Classroom from ServiceRocket.
