iBeacon Classroom App Ensures That Students Can’t Play Hooky
BeHere seamlessly tracks attendance as students walk through the door.
Apple’s iBeacon is being used by more and more retailers, but new app BeHere uses that same technology to aid teachers in the classroom by automatically taking attendance as students enter the room.
Created by Brazillian-based mobile developing company, Beelieve, BeHere uses Bluetooth LE-enabled transmitters to communicate and push alerts to other iOS 7 devices running the same app in a given space. Teachers can simply start the app from their iPads, and any student who walks through the door with the app running from their iPhones or iPods will be registered as present.
