In 2010, an academical institution co-financed the development of the A_ttendances_ tool
as well as the course progress tool (see next chapter) with a set of basic specifications. Over time it has evolved, thanks to the many suggestions from community users and the financial support of some customers. Today it's a more advanced tool, but it is still very young, which explains why its interface still leaves room for improvement.
