eRegisters

eRegisters is Birkbeck's electronic class register system.

We have provided card readers in most Birkbeck classrooms, to allow you to record class attendance by tapping your ID card.

You should register your attendance in all your teaching events. Simply tap your ID card on the reader any time from 15 minutes before the class starts, to 15 minutes after the class is scheduled to end.

In locations without card readers, your attendance will usually be recorded manually, and entered into the system by a member of staff.

You will be able to view your own attendance history on your My Birkbeck Profile. Schools will monitor attendance as they always have done, and talk to students who they think are at risk due to poor attendance - this new system simply means they can spend less time taking registers, and more time teaching!

NB: In some events you may be asked to complete a paper register in addition to tapping your ID card. This is so we can be sure the new system is working correctly.
