Cal Poly physics professor TOM BENSKY mainly teaches in a lecture hall. For years, he couldn't find a good way to take daily class attendance. Then it dawned on the California Faculty Association member that smartphones are ubiquitous — and location-aware. Last summer he used his "meager" Web-design skills to come up with Youhere, an app that uses geofencing and a phone's location capabilities so students can let teachers know they're present (those who say they are but aren't are stymied by the virtual fence). Bensky now starts class by saying, "Please check in with your phone." Genius! Attendance records are compiled and available on the site Download the app from Apple Store or Google Play. 58 CTA & You L I T F R O M W I T H I N APPLY TODAY: call 1-888-758-7946 or visit Mention Priority Code BAACA2 Plus CASH REWARDS BONUS if you make at least $500 in purchases in the first 90 days of account opening** $ 150 For more information about the rates, fees, other costs and benefits associated with the use of the credit card, call the toll-free number above or visit * Choice category, grocery store and wholesale club Net Purchases earn bonus cash rewards on the first $2,500 of combined Net Purchases made each calendar quarter.
