Student Check In

We’re now asking students to check in for all centrally timetabled learning events, whether they are on campus, at one of our other teaching venues or in the virtual learning environment. This will help build up a better view of student engagement.  

Students can quickly and easily check in via the Edinburgh Napier App or by visiting myaccount.napier.ac.uk.

While some Schools have traditionally kept class lists, the Student Check In function is now the only process that should be used. 

Student check in forms part of our student engagement reporting​, which the University uses to identify and support students who have disengaged with their studies. Please encourage students to only check in if they are attending the event, as we are using the data to support them in their studies and to help support their welfare.

You can also look at detailed check in data at a module and student level. You’ll find the ‘Student Engagement Reporting – Attendance Report Guide’ here.

Student check in also provides supporting evidence for students on a visa with attendance requirements and we can share this data with UK Visas & Immigration.

Watch the staff video and the student video​ on how to use Student Check In, and use the slide available here​ to introduce Student Check In to students at the start of trimester.

You can get more information on Student Check In on My Napier.

If you have any queries relating to Student Check In, contact Jane Kinloch, Project Manager.
