Mobile Attendance Application is a cross platform mobile application where students can mark attendance from their smartphones. This application takes multiple parameters into consideration to determine if the student is physically present in the class or not. i.e. the GPS location, Coyote login ID. This application also has the functionality to generate the attendance sheets in excel format to the instructor. The application is aimed to save class time at no extra cost of purchasing any special peripheral devices. User authentication is one of the important factors in this proposed system. Every student is authenticated based on his/her unique user identification number.

If a student does not have access to a mobile device or if the device battery is dead, then he/she can indicate to the instructor who can mark the attendance in the instructor’s smartphone.
