Abstract

The requirement for online attendance as well as validating a student's actual presence during the class became a difficult problem as a direct result of the increase in the prevalence of online education, particularly as a consequence of the COVID 19 epidemic. The method of taking attendance at educational institutions is still the same, whether it's done physically or online. As a result, the primary focus of this work is on the development of a mechanism for verifying the presence of students participating in online classrooms. The problem has been approached from an algorithmic standpoint in order to suggest a solution to it. The algorithm has been suggested after taking into consideration a number of important criteria, such as the entry and exit timings, the total number of minutes of presence, and the number of times that a student exits the class. The method is an attempt to offer a simplified version of the authentication system for use in online classes. These classes are typically held utilizing online platforms like Google Meet, Zoom, or Microsoft Teams, amongst others. The educational institutions will be able to eliminate the need for manual attendance recording and verify the students' participation in the online class if the proposed algorithm is put into action.
