Community service as part of the Tri Dharma of Higher Education is one of the genuine contributions to the development of the Indonesian nation's welfare and progress. In addition to providing solutions based on academic research of societal problems, either directly or indirectly. As a result, on April 8, 2021, ITTelkom Surabaya performed community service at the AGCA Autism School.
" We are grateful for this event because it eliminates the need for the teachers here to take attendance in the traditional manner, which usually entails taking notes on paper. We hope that in the future, it will not stop here, but that there will be other things that can be synergized." said Juli Gracia as the head of the Natanisha Foundation, AGCA School.
The team of ITTelkom Surabaya lecturers and students creates a fingerprint that is useful for providing fast automatic data such as attendance for teachers at AGCA schools so that it is easier to record working time accurately, simplifies salary calculations, saves time and paper, is practical and economical, prevents human error, and many more.
" The concept of community service arose from the use of traditional methods in absent AGCA school teachers, so we took their fingerprints, but it didn't end there. For the next six months, we will also provide socialization and assistance. Meanwhile, the focus of this tool remains on teachers." said Anfazul Faridatul Azizah, a lecturer in Information Systems as well as the chief executive of community service.
Tanfirul Roibafi, Nabilah Monica Hidayat, and Fannijara Enggar Larasati are among the students participating in this program. On the other hand, this AGCA school has several other branches, including in Bekasi, Semarang, Kudus, and Surabaya, and has used the ABI method in its learning system for 23 years, where autistic people will be taught with great refinement and children's character will be improved.
