Taking attendance with Youhere takes two parts. The first has to do with settings you
make at our website Youhere.org. The second has to do with the app that your
students install on their phones.
With the website, you create a class in your account---something like
my-8am-spanish-class. Under this class, you'll use a map to locate the
center-point (location) for your attendance. You'll also set an 'inclusion zone'
around this center-point that defines an acceptable attendance region (sort of like a
fence), since location services on phones aren't perfect. You can also restrict student check-ins to particular days or times.
With the app, (Apple App Store or Google Play) your students will connect with the website---and your
class, my-8am-spanish-class---using their phones. Their connection will
be done in class, where their location, as determined by their phone, will prove their
attendance in your class (within your inclusion zone). The website will log all of this for you.
Here's how it all works.
