Here’s an informative article about securing your smart phone from CNet….
Positive attendance reporting is required for classes where the hours students attend are variable. The College decided this past fall 2013 semester to create a web-based tool that allows you to enter hours throughout the semester for students attending courses that require positive attendance. Entering hours is simpler than you may think.
Here’s how to get to positive attendance login if you’d rather not watch the short video…
Go to http://pipeline.sbcc.edu (Use your Campus PIpeline ID and password to access the site)
- Choose the TEACH tab
- Then in the faculty links channel, look for the link titled “Enter Positive Attendance.” It’s located right below the link for Entering Flex hours. If you don’t see an “enter positive attendance” link then you have NO positive attendance to report. If you do, then there is a link.
The instructions for entering positive attendance are in this video which is also posted on the positive attendance reporting site.
