An app created by developers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), working with colleagues at Aegean AI Inc., helps manage converged learning at universities, in which some students are physically present in the classroom and the rest participate virtually.

The app, back2classroom.app, generates detailed analytics, including the in-person utilization rate on any given day or time of day for different buildings, classrooms, and common spaces.

The app allows students to reserve or cancel in-person spots, download their reserved spots to their calendars, and mark their attendance for an in-person or remote spot. Faculty can use the app to view a student's status and take attendance.

NJIT's Pantelis Monogioudis said other universities have expressed interest in the app and its capabilities for classroom capacity management.
