What is Roll Call?
Roll Call is a web-based attendance tracking system designed to aid professors in logging student attendance in high volume lectures.
In a hall of 100+ students, recording lecture attendance by traditional means (i.e. name calling) is simply impractical; the act of gathering it would require more effort and precious lecture time than most would be willing to give to the cause. Roll Call solves this problem by enabling students to log their attendance simultaneously, effectively reducing the time and effort involved to a constant. (Records indicate that in a hall of 185 students it takes approximately three minutes to record attendance.)
