Extended Abstract

It's time to get serious about student authentication and identity analysis inside higher ed. The federal government is tightening up their standards on financial aid and accrediting agencies are demanding that schools have a legitimate way to verify a student's identity. What is your school doing to ensure the student enrolled in the course is the one completing the work? Are you only using an authentication system when proctoring exams? What about during coursework inside the LMS or project-based learning? No longer is username/password secure enough. Join us as we discuss the challenges facing schools as they balance privacy concerns, accrediting demands, and cost-efficient ways to accomplish both. Learn about the most cutting-edge technology available on the market today to protect your students' sensitive information while ensuring confidence of their identity.
