Janison enables University of London students to sit exams at home
SYDNEY, June 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Janison Education Group (JAN:ASX) has been selected to deliver 37,000 examinations online in July for students of the University of London studying through distance and flexible learning in 100 countries.
The edtech solution will allow the University to complete its critical assessment needs amid lockdowns caused by the COVID-19 crisis. It is the first time that some of its study programmes will deliver exams digitally, and the first time the University will make use of remote proctoring technology.
Janison, the University of London and its CoSector arm specialising in digital solutions for higher education have all worked to a very tight deadline to make these examinations possible for its students, whilst meeting professional requirements.
Craig O'Callaghan, Director of Operations and Deputy Chief Executive, University of London Worldwide, said: "This has been an incredibly fast-moving project to ensure that all our students studying through distance and flexible learnin across the world are provided with continuity and certainty for their examinations. The reputation of the University of London is based on the rigour of its examinations and we are confident that our online timed examinations will stand up to the rigour."
Examinations will be delivered remotely to students' homes via digital exam platform, Janison Insights and remote proctoring solution, Janison Remote. Each session will be recorded via webcam and uploaded for review for integrity against the University's strict guidelines, then quality assured by the University to ensure secure and equitable delivery.
David Caspari, Janison's Chief Executive Officer, said: "Education continuity is the foundation of the education sector's business model. By allowing students to continue their assessments on schedule, this project directly addresses the standstill that the higher education sector has suffered as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns."
Janison delivers online assessments to millions of candidates in 100+ countries, for organisations including the British Council, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Singaporean government, and government departments in Australia. https://www.janison.com/online-assessment/
