Over the past two years, online proctoring has ensured its place in education and is here to stay. Julian Prommer from TU Darmstadt will give us an insight into how online exams and online proctoring have evolved over the last 2-3 years and which learnings were important in the process.
When shifting into remote proctoring, institutions like TU Darmstadt needs to ensure a remote assessment environment that is safe, secure, effective, scalable, and offers the best test-takers experience.
In this session, Julian Prommer will show how TU Darmstadt implemented online Proctoring with Proctorio and will use practical examples to explain which aspects are crucial and should be considered when setting up an online proctoring environment.
- Use case of how the TU Darmstadt uses remote proctoring.
