Online PR News – 13-February-2021 – Mumbai – As remote learning and online exams become the new norm, schools and colleges are seeking different ways to eliminate the commonly associated issues with online education. One such institution, Edward Waters College (EWC), has finalized a deal with renowned online assessment portal uLearn.io, which will serve as their proctoring partner.
A prominent educational institute located in Jacksonville, Florida, EWC currently utilizes the open-source LMS Moodle to facilitate learners' online course management. With LTI assistance, uLearn’s software extensively integrates with such systems. uLearn’s tools provide a seamless user experience for faculty and students due to its LTI capabilities. The software simplifies login and authentication for students with a single sign-in feature.
Traditional academics often question the legitimacy of exams conducted over the internet. To address such apprehensions, uLearn’s proctoring systems can help EWC conduct cheat-proof online tests for their students. The proctoring tool seamlessly integrates with EWC’s Moodle platform and uses artificial intelligence to autonomously monitor test takers remotely. Along with live proctoring uLearn also provides auto-proctoring options.
uLearn’s software tools are compatible with all PCs and laptops. After plugging-in uLearn’s software with their web browser, a student can start taking the exam from the LMS itself. The instructor can monitor the student’s camera feed and issue instructions while the exam is going on. During the test, uLearn’s AI-powered vigilance settings ensure that students are flagged for cheating if they resort to unethical practices. After the exam is complete, uLearn’s software provides an analysis of the student’s ethical performance in a detailed proctoring report.
While the tests are strictly monitored to avoid cheating, uLearn’s proctoring system ensures that students’ data security and privacy are not compromised. The proctoring software prevents intrusion into the students’ personal environment. uLearn does not make it compulsory for students to provide a 360-degree background verification of their surroundings. Moreover, uLearn’s privacy settings disallow proctors from getting a full view of the students. What makes uLearn an even more compelling proctoring solution is that the afore mentioned features come in a convenient and cost-effective package.
Jeenal Ganatra, Marketing Head, uLearn.io, states, “While designing the uLearn proctoring software, we have prioritized data security and student privacy to make it as seamless as possible for students, and at the same time making it convenient and cost-effective for institutions conducting the exams.” About uLearn’s partnership with EWC, she says, “We are delighted to be associated with such an esteemed institute. We’re sure our proctoring services can ensure the smooth organization of online exams for Edward Waters College”.
