Syracuse University is one of many colleges tracking students’ locations through an app called SpotterEDU.
Professors are using this app to reinforce their class attendance policy by determining when students are present. According to SpotterEDU, it works by students phones with the downloaded app communicating with pre-installed devices inside the classroom in which they are supposed to be for class. The company says it does not track students outside of classrooms.
