You may need to think about attendance and participation in new ways when teaching in online or hybrid modes.
You can track student attendance using Webex and Zoom in Canvas. You can monitor participation on the Canvas Discussion Board (you can see the names of students who have contributed to the discussion). If you use Canvas to distribute course material and engage the students in online discussions, uploading assignments, etc., you can monitor their participation with Course Analytics.
Here is the Student Attendance for Fall 2020 policy from JMU's Division of Academic Affairs.
