Proctor System – Western University
Western University to Switch Remote Exam Proctoring Software
Western University in London, Ontario has chosen Proctorio as their new proctoring system to prevent academic offences. Proctario prevents such offences by accessing the student’s computer’s connected device list, desktop screen, web cameras and microphone. At the same time, Proctario cannot access personal files or system settings on users’ devices, thus protecting privacy.
“Proctorio was chosen because it addresses the privacy and security needs of our students while meeting the technical requirements to integrate with Western’s systems,” says the University.
