Online Proctoring and What it requires

Who is a proctor?

A proctor is a person who invigilates an online proctoring service or online exam. He is trained to keep check of learner’s activities through a webcam.

Why proctoring?

Students with the advancement of time are approaching for e-learning which is less time consuming and cost-effective.

To abandon the customs of cheating in an education system, e-learning is introduced.

The atmosphere of e-learning is in complete contrast to educational institutions.

Researches have proved that students have confessed about cheating when they were not monitored. During a survey, 73% of online students which were not proctored during their exams admitted that they cheated.

Proctoring has prevented students from cheating during their examination.

To monitor students taking online classes and exams at their own domains using their personal devices was a difficult task a time back, but proctoring has made it easier.
