Abstract

Faculty are often hesitant to migrate their face to face courses to an online environment because of the difficulty in ensuring the integrity of the courses. Accrediting agencies evaluate post-secondary institutions on the process they have put in place to verify the identity of the students. Another concern is the ease in which students can look up information online using the internet. Many companies have developed different online monitoring systems intended to prevent access to the internet while taking tests. However, most of the software do not adequately address students’ ability to conspicuously access the internet with secondary mobile devices. This paper presents an innovative solution to the problem of ensuring integrity in distance learning courses. The ease with which students can access information online will be presented and a live demonstration of the solutions provided by this innovative product will be performed.
