Introduction to the Qwickly Attendance Tool:
Qwickly Attendance is an integrated Blackboard course tool that enables faculty to take attendance that can automatically be posted to the Blackboard Grade Center. Faculty can take attendance using an attendance list on the screen or allow students to check in on their own browser, complete with a PIN and countdown timer.

Tutorials and Guidance for Qwickly Attendance:
Step 1: Add Qwickly Attendance to the Course Menu – This creates an easy access point to take attendance. The student view of attendance allows students to see their own attendance record and provides the link to check in when a faculty member chooses to use student check-in.
Step 2: Set Up Qwickly Attendance for the first time when using it in each course – The first time you visit the tool in a course, you’ll need to complete the settings for the course. This can be as simple as clicking Submit to accept the default settings. If you need to make changes later, you can visit the settings screen at any time. You will not be able to take attendance in a course until this setup is complete.
