Qwickly is an optional attendance tool that allows instructors to manage attendance from within Canvas modules. Depending on how your instructor decides to use Qwickly, you may be asked to check in and register your attendance in class. You can also view your individual attendance record for the modules where the tool is in use.

If your instructor is using Qwickly in Canvas you will find a link in your module navigation menu:

Student Check In

If your instructor chooses to use the Check In option, they will share with you the pin that will need to be entered for that session. You can enter this pin when prompted and then click Check In. You will be notified of a successful check in.

Please note, some instructors may use a timer to limit the check in period. Remaining time for the check in period will be displayed on this screen as well.

Please note: The check-in feature works best with the Canvas Student App. It can also be used in your browser with Chrome, Firefox or Edge recommended. Qwickly check-in is not supported in the Safari browser.
