Introducing ProctorCam, an Online Proctoring Service for Distance Learning Students
Simple, economical solution that saves distance learning students time and money while maintaining institutional integrity
BOSTON, MA, August 3 -- Distance learning students face a common challenge: locating an exam proctor. Test centers are often located far from suburban or rural students and independent proctors present scheduling hurdles as well as inconsistencies in monitoring. ProctorCam provides academic and professional institutions online proctors removing the current issues for distance test-takers.
Founded by remote master’s degree student Joann Toof and her son, Rob, the ProctorCam online proctoring system removes the travel, scheduling and expense frustrations many distance learning students face. “Driving for two hours down back roads in the middle of winter was not only inconvenient,” said Ms. Toof, “it was potentially dangerous.” Although the university allowed Joann to commission an independent proctor, she could only schedule her exam when her independent proctor was available. “Distance learning is all about convenience. Distance test-taking is all about inconvenience”.
Currently in beta at a major university, ProctorCam helps test-takers from colleges, universities, and professional associations take exams at any location, such as home, office or hotel. The system integrates desktop sharing software, a web cam, a microphone and a reliable internet connection, to provide secure and trusted proctoring for any online test. ProctorCam also includes an easy-to-use scheduling platform that facilitates scheduling between students and a trained proctor.
