Abstract Recording and monitoring of class attendance is an area of administration that can require significant amounts of time and effort in a school/university environment, largely due to the amount of time required in lectures to get the necessary information (Patel, et al., 2012).Educational institutions’ administrators in our country and the whole world are concerned about regularity of student attendance as students’ overall academic performance is affected by it (Agrawal and Bansal, 2013). The consequences of low attendance are serious and not just affect the absent students but also influence the community (Siti Hawa and Rozlina, 2012). The manual attendance taking and reporting of absence from classes are tedious processes experienced by most lecturers in many educational institutions. These consumed times, used lots of papers and filing, and caused duplicated or loss of data. Objective: UiTM Here application is developed to overcome the issues related to attendance taking and further simplify the process of taking students’ attendance and absence reporting. Novelty: • it enables the users (students) to use QR code to take attendance and the lecturers can take note of the date and time of the students’ absenteeism, based on the students’ ID. • it can calculate the percentage of absence automatically and generate absence status immediately for each student. • the academic administrators and lecturers of UiTM Here can view the report of all absenteeism records daily. • it enables the administrator to do SMS blast to the absentees to warn them of their absence status. Usefulness: This application is user-friendly and it can be installed in the lecturers’ and students’ smart phones with the aim to monitor their attendance to classes. Commercialization: This application can be further customized to cater the needs of other educational institutions or even other organizations or departments in monitoring the staff’s attendance.
