The TikTok video shows the lecturer walking around the class and presenting the scanner to the students to thumbprint.

The Uniport students did it willingly and even happily as the man patiently waited for each to go through the authentication process.

People who saw the video said the man did the right thing because mischievous students are known for writing the names of their friends absent from the class in the attendance register.

However, others insisted that some students might still find a way around the lecturer’s innovative idea.
