This course uses Virtual Proctoring. Virtual proctoring is the use of web-based technology to supervise an exam or the delivery of educational material, including online courses, exams, and even form completions. By using facial detection and recognition technology, the software verifies the identity of the learner and ensures learners are following the session rules. This means that it not only verifies identity, but also whether or not users are paying attention. All of this is done using the capabilities already built in to web browsers and webcams, so no additional software is required to install.
