Learning Management Systems
Experts have predicted that by 2015, there will be 25 million post-secondary students in the US taking classes online. While this growth is good news for students and online colleges, the need to manage the verification process of their students as required by federal law can be costly. Adding BSI as a technology partner will help Learning Management System customers keep administrative tasks associated with their growth to a minimum and provide a transparent solution to students that is low-cost and easy to use while maintaining the highest level of student integrity.
BioSig-ID is a software-only multi-factor authentication process that provides institutions with a compliance solution to meet federal regulations requiring institutions to verify the identify of every online student for accreditation purposes. BSI’s Student Identity authentication solution also can help reduce helpdesk and proctoring costs.
Anyone can be verified using login credentials, BSI authenticates who is using those credentials.
BSI’s Identity Management software does not require any additional hardware or software downloads, can be used on any PC, tablet or smart phone device anywhere, anytime, does not collect personal identifying information, and tracks and reports all interactions. The cost for this technology is capped per student, which saves institutions and students money on additional examination proctoring fees while enabling them to verify the student’s identity at different times during the course.
How it Works
The typical use case for use in Learning Management Systems is an instructor who wishes to authenticate a
student’s identity before they are able to take an exam or quiz or complete an assignment. BSI is happy to offer our student authentication
technology via leading LMS systems including Pearson eCollege LearningStudio, BlackBoard, Moodle, Moodleroom, Remote Learner and Desire2Learn. We are also working to provide this functionality with several other leading LMS systems, please check with us about our progress with your provider.
The workflow for implementing this would be as follows:
- Create the task to be released to students (but do not release it)
- Select the instances where you wish to gate the students access with the Biometric Signature ID tool
- Make the tasks available to students
- For students only the Biometric Signature ID tool will be visible; clicking on this item will redirect them to the BSI BioSig-ID identity authentication system
- When the student has authenticated their identity the date and time are recorded automatically making the task/assignment visible to them
This gating may be used with any assignments/quizzes or exams.
