Mapping the Future of Online Proctoring
November 12, 2020
9:15 – 10:00 AM

Though enrollments in online education have been steadily increasing for years, no one could have predicted the meteoric adoption of online learning in 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic has, of course, presented unprecedented challenges – but it has also spurred innovation and creative thinking as institutions and providers seek to support students in a rapidly changing landscape. In this session, team members from the country’s leading online proctoring company will discuss lessons learned from six months of collaboration, including:

•  The adoption of online proctoring at warp speed, and its ramifications for students and institutions
•  Effective measures to protect privacy and maintain security – Communication best practices for instructors and test-takers
•  What the future may hold – in 2021 and beyond

Hear from a panel of Examity experts in a variety of areas – product, account management, and security – as they walk through lessons learned from 2020 and discuss what to expect both now and in the future.
