Schools rely on tedious processes to take attendance, which in turn reduces the vital time that teachers can spend with passionate students who want to learn. It is surprising that in such an advanced day and age that schools do not take the full advantage of cellphones. That is why we created Verifai, an online client to integrate cell phones into school processes.
We encountered many challenges creating this application. The main parts of our application was the login information, course information, roster, and attendance services. We used the various unique aspects of cell phones. The camera, for example, was used to add another level of interaction with classroom activities, scanning QR codes to join groups, and location services to verify attendance.
