The attendance register You-Attend can be used to track class attendance with options for manual entry and online classes. It can also connect to a gradebook in D2L.
In order to access You-Attend, the different default course navigation bar must be in use. If you are tracking attendance for an online class you will also need to change the Default Homepage and/or add the You-Attend widget to the homepage.
Record attendance for online classes by automatically tracking student entries into the course.
NOTE: Choosing the Online record type counts the number of times students access a course on different days, so accessing the course twice on the same day would only count as one entry. This record type does not track the completion of activities. It is recommended that faculty establish clear expectations for attendance with students to maintain accurate attendance records.
Record attendance by manually tracking student entries to the course.
Connecting Attendance to the gradebook will automatically transfer tracked attendance to a Grade Item. The grade is calculated based on the values provided in other fields during setup.
