The Biometric face recognition system that was put in place as a pilot project in five government first grade colleges in Bangalore in February to ensure better accountability of lecturers’ attendance, will be extended to all the 360-odd government degree colleges in the State from the next academic year, despite opposition from lecturers.
The Department of Collegiate Education (DCE) tied up with Ipomo, a Bangalore-based company that specialises mainly in mobile learning and introduced the system on a pilot basis between February 25 and March 25 in Maharani’s Arts College, Maharani’s Science College, Government Arts College, Government Science College and VHD Home Science College in Bangalore. Following good reviews from principals of these colleges about the system, the department has decided to extend it to colleges across the State.
