Privacy Considerations for Virtual Classes and Virtual Proctoring
With the transition to remote learning and fall semester quickly coming to a close, the Keep Teaching Taskforce continues to strongly recommend that traditional high stakes assessments, such as final exams, are redesigned where possible. If after careful consideration you plan to conduct final examinations online, a web page dedicated to virtual proctoring resources,tools, and procedures has been developed.
On this webpage, you will find information about:
- Considerations about virtual proctoring, such as the limitations of technology, accessibility, privacy and timezones
- Virtual proctoring tools available
- Ryerson’s privacy policies
- What you as an instructor need to know about virtual proctoring
- Using external third party tools
- What students need to know about virtual proctoring
Support for faculty regarding remote teaching and alternative assessment resources is available from the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching by phone, email, or video appointment. Please sign up to make an appointment with a member of the Teaching Centre team, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
