Online proctoring with Easy LMS + web conferencing tool

When you don't have the option to proctor an exam physically (or SEB is too difficult or tedious for you to set up), you could use any program that has a screen sharing feature. This could be Skype, GoToMeeting, or WebEx. This way you can keep an eye on your participant while he's taking the test. However, there are a few limitations:

If you have a lengthy Exam you'll need to sit out and wait for those hours too 😅
Both of you need to have the program

You can also hire professional online proctoring services to use in conjuction with Easy LMS, such as ProctorU or ProctorExam.

When using this method to proctor an Exam it's best to find an appropriate time that suits you both, especially when you're in different time zones. A few examples of this method can be:

Foreign university applicants that need to take an entry Exam
Mandatory internal training for a multinational firm
Foreign applicants wanting to work for your company who reside in a different time zone

We currently don't have a specific feature in our tool that enables you to verify the ID of a participant. You can set up the login settings for your participants so they manually add their own information. Currently, the best way to ensure that a specific person will be taking the test is by using the invite-only feature.
