The development of the TKU e-card began in 2010 when the university implemented the international Yo-yo card into the ID. In 2014, this step has been completed and the identification card of all students and teachers now has the Yo-yo card on the back. The next step is to introduce the RFID sensor card in order to help students relocate their card if it is missing stolen or otherwise misplaced. The new system will allow for more safety on campus and will also allow endless other functions such as administration information, class searches and curriculum information, electronic signature, grade reports, contact information, internet sites, examination reminders and more.
