Human Recognition Systems (HRS) will launch its student identity and attendance verification platform to the university sector at the UKCISA Annual Conference at the University of Glasgow.
As visa restrictions on international students are tightened, universities must ensure accurate reporting in order to comply with the Home Office rules for Tier 4 student immigration and maintain their Highly Trusted Sponsor (HTS) status.
The MVerify platform enables the automated capture and verification of student identity documents, such as passports and visas intended to reduce the cost. In addition, MVerify also automates the capture of student attendance during teaching sessions using fingerprint or smart card technology integrated onto a hand held device.
The system operates off an online platform that enables quick deployment without the need for infrastructure set up. The platform can also be integrated into existing Student Information Systems (SIS) to provide a complete end-to-end student reporting solution, with the first integration being Tribal’s SITS:Vision system.
The ability to access student information from any location in real-time will also benefit universities with students and staff located across multiple sites.Data is fed back into the MVerify web application to allow simplified monitoring and reporting of student attendance data in real-time. It eradicates reporting errors and irregularities and helps improve student retention and academic performance through increased course attendance.
With the ability to be operated from a hand held device that can be passed among students, MVerify also supports an improved student experience by enabling more time to be spent on teaching rather than taking student attendance.
