Demonstration of online exam platforms
A growing number of online platforms are emerging, which can be used to manage exams online. The BLE contacted three suppliers to provide remote demonstrations and the sessions were each recorded.
1. DigiExam (27th April 2016)
"DigiExam started in October 2011 with the purpose of making digital examinations available for everyone. We want to remove the tedious parts of handwritten exams for the students and bring examinations into the 21st century, allowing the students to express themselves with tools they are used to and work with daily. We also want teachers to stop spending tons of time grading handwritten and unreadable exams and instead spending that time on more important things, such as meeting and inspiring students, in other words bringing teachers back to the classroom.
The first step is to remove pen and paper from the process, then a new world of opportunities opens up when a school fully enters the digital era."

"ProctorExam offers a web-based platform for Safe Online Exams. We identify the exam taker behind the computer and create a highly secure exam environment in order to deliver high-stakes exams. Anywhere, any time!" The service includes a human invigilator working remotely from the student.
