ProctorU hits the mainstream!

November 21, 2008

Some of you may be familiar with Slamwire and AJU’s joint venture, Pupilcity.  Our first project is ProctorU, a secure exam proctoring service for distance education.  Using webcams, VNC connections and authentication through a partnership with Acxiom, we allow students who are taking classes online to complete thier exams online as well, all while keep a high level of academic integrity.  Read the press release here.

From the release:

Acxiom’s Mike Jortberg says, “Unlike recording devices that require a user registration process, complex software installation and special training for both students and instructors, Pupilcity’s ProctorU solution is a much simpler approach for the distance learning student and instructor. We are excited to have the Acxiom Fact-Check-X student identity solution embedded into ProctorU. If an institution is considering using face to face proctors for their students, this is the next best thing to expensive, in-person human observation of a test taker.”
