The university curricula based on the Bologna guidelines established the continued attendance of students as an important objective. It has been shown that attending classes, with a proactive attitude and due attention, leads to better learning and assimilation of knowledge and skills. On many occasions, in fact, it is considered a mandatory percentage that the student must attend.

Teachers, over time, have established different methods to account for this attendance throughout the course. In very large groups or subjects this really is a challenge. In any case, the different methods have advantages and disadvantages. The most common procedure is still a sheet of paper where the students sign, but if the control is not very exhaustive, in large groups it can lead to the appearance of signatures from students who are not present in the classroom, in addition to the problem of count and add all the attendances for each of the students.

This paper proposes the digital record of student attendance by delivering a personal QR code. In addition, after this registration, the student can check their attendance in a spreadsheet that is updated automatically. This allows a precise control of attendance (the students who don’t attend cannot show the QR code and it is not scanned), as well as an automatic accounting of the same.
