Trinity Grammar School automates remote student roll calls

The school streamlines daily attendance registration with Nintex Workflow Cloud.

Trinity Grammar School is committed to delivering best-practice learning experiences for students and uses a mix of ICT resources to support classroom and administrative activities. For the past nine years, Trinity has worked with technology partner Synergy, a Nintex Premier Partner, to deploy a range of technologies including a Canvas Learning Management System and a Synergetic school management system.

When the COVID-19 pandemic led to widespread lockdowns in early March 2020, Trinity pivoted quickly to its remote learning program. Working from home, students engaged with teachers, undertook online coursework, and interacted with their peers. As part of this transition, the school needed to swiftly and accurately check attendance to ensure students were participating in online activities each day.

Supported by Synergy, the ICT team created an attendance registration form on Nintex Workflow Cloud that connects with the school system’s Microsoft SQL database. Following the decision to proceed with Nintex, the new system was fully operational in just two days.

Who they are

For more than 115 years, Trinity Grammar School has been providing boys with a thoroughly Christian education in mind, body, and spirit from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12.

What they need

With the suspension of in-person classroom teaching during the COVID-19 shutdown, students were forced to learn from home. The school needed an efficient and effective way to check student attendance at the start of each school day.

How they did it

The school used Nintex Workflow Cloud to create a digital form for students to report their participation in online classes each morning.

Totally seamless experience

With the new system up and running, students were asked to confirm their attendance at 8:25am each school day. More than 1,600 middle and senior-school students access the form via the school’s Canvas learning management platform to register their presence each school day. When a student logs into Canvas, they click a link to submit their attendance which opens the Nintex Form. It’s lightweight and responsive on whatever device the student is using at home—the entire experience is totally seamless.

The school had to rapidly find an alternative. When we realized how quickly we could build a solution with Nintex, we knew it was the right choice.
