University checks attendance by phone

A Japanese university has started using mobile phones in a new plan to thwart attendance cheats.

"Under the plan, students at Aomori University, upon entering a class, must use a mobile phone to e-mail a number their teacher will show them as the lesson begins. This number connects to a college administrators' site.

Administrators then randomly select five to 10 students who have claimed attendance and send them a reply.

Those receiving the reply must stand up in the classroom and give their name. The random selection aims to prevent students from helping absentee pals skirt the attendance requirement."
