Welcome to the SAM webpage
SAM is an innovative project which aims to deliver a student attendance monitoring system for use by academic, support staff and students enrolled at UWL. This approach has not been tried by any other HEIs, UWL are leading the way. Other HEIs do attendance monitoring but we have done it a unique way, to combine all aspects of attendance data – access control, touch in, timetable and portal.
SAM relies on a complex business process that pulls data from at least four different systems including the building access gates (G4S system), UNIT-e for student and course information, CMIS for timetabling/room information and the SAM readers inside each room for attendance at a class at a specific time and location.
