The Daily Illini --  Colleges across the country are using bluetooth to track attendance in their classes using a company called SpotterEDU. Assistant Professor Gang Wang would like to see policies to protect students and faculty before apps like SpotterEDU are used on campus. “The challenge is that apps like these could update daily, monthly or semi-semesterly basis, and every update brings new functionality and users. Students and the University deserve to know and need to prove the updates aren’t intrusive to their students,” Wang said.
