We are pleased to announce the release of the new feature, Location Confirmation, which is now available for Qwickly Attendance Plus and Qwickly Attendance Pro licensees. This is a feature that confirms whether the student's device is at or near the location of the course, as defined by the Qwickly administrator. We have had numerous requests for such a feature and are happy to announce it has been integrated into the Qwickly Attendance Mobile App.
Using the Qwickly Attendance Mobile App (available for iOS and Android), instructors and administrators can easily verify whether a student is within a specific geographic location using latitude and longitude. At this time, we only allow one location per course which can only be defined and edited by the LMS administrator. The App will send the location of the course to the student's device and the device will confirm "in-zone," "out-of-zone," or "unable to determine." Please note we never receive the student's location. Qwickly sends the location of the course to the student’s device and the device sends back a notification to Qwickly making sure they are within the parameters.
If you aren’t already a Qwickly Attendance Plus or Qwickly Attendance Pro licensee and are interested in trying this new feature out, request a free trial today!
