Back in uni, whenever we ponteng classes, we would usually ask our friends to ‘cover’ for us or, in other words, sign the attendance for us. However, with the emergence of this new technology, it looks like some uni students unfortunately cannot do that anymore!

A student from University Technology Petronas (UTP) shared a photo of  ‘attendance taking’  in her class on Twitter. In the photo, it is seen that the students verified their attendance by using their smartphones to scan a Quick Response (QR) Code given by their Lecturer. Yep! No more ‘helping’ friends in attendance anymore.

As the photo gained popularity, netizens expressed how amusing and somewhat informative the method was. Like, this one user, who posted the photo on a UNITEN Facebook group page:

However, another user wrote back that this system is actually not that easy to cheat.

Not only that, he also added, the QR code would only be valid for a short period of time thus if the form was to be filled up late, it will not be submitted. This means you have to sign the attendance as soon as the lecturer projects the QR code. 

Meanwhile, another user from University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) shared a video, where the same system was also applied there.

FYI, UNIMAS is actually where they first started using QR Code to take attendances.

Just right after, another user from the University of Science Malaysia (USM) shared a video where they use thumbprints to sign for attendance. Yep, you read that right thumbprints! Canggih giler!

Thinking about it, this method of attendance taking is quite cool but I am sure glad that I did not have this during my time in college! How to help your friends like this? Let’s us know in the comments what you think of this technology?
