The title of this article is misleading. The students of Aoyama Gakuin’s School of Social Informatics are allowed to use iPhone for attendance reporting, lecture podcasting and having online examination.They don’t have to carry it all the time and they don’t need permission to go off-campus. It just prevents 代返 (answering a roll call for another).
