Mobile Project Overview:
They need to take attendance in each and every period in case of private engineering colleges and they have 60-90 students in a single class.
They need to look at each and every student and then mark on the attendance book absent or present. Then they carry the attendance book with them, they also need to keep them safely for future reference.
This takes lots of time in taking in attendance and at last of the year they need to count total attendance and then find the percentage of each and every student.
This is the burden on the professors. To remove this burden we can develop such application that will take attendance automatically and fast. This application will be based on the different modules like:
List of Modules in this Mobile phone based Attendance System Project:
User: this module is for staff, they need to enter user name and password to enter this page, than only they can take attendance from mobile phones.
Attendance entry: this module for marking the attendance of the students. They select branch, year and semester of the students. After that they mark to the absentees.

Display: this module is for students, they can check their attendance, they need to select their year, semester and branch.
SMS: this is the best feature of the application; student can get his attendance on his cell phone by just sending an SMS from anywhere.
