Online Proctoring Services For Higher Education

Online proctoring services are a key component of fully online learning. These services provide the means for verifying the identity of students at a distance before an assessment and the methods for ensuring that students taking the assessment are not cheating or getting unauthorized support. Online proctoring systems do this by providing access to a proctor via a webcam or by using a combination of technological means such as browser lockdown, voiceprint, and keystroke or other biometrics, or analysis of video generated during an exam.
