The Next Level Of Online Proctoring: How Artificial Intelligence Is Changing The Game

Concurrent Session 2

Brief Abstract

The rate of technological innovation and adoption in higher education is growing at a rapid pace. In this session, we’ll dive into the technology behind our latest version of live proctoring, Live+, and how we leverage artificial intelligence to catch and prevent more academic dishonesty than ever before.


Jarrod pioneered the online proctoring industry in 2008 when he founded ProctorU and created a patented proctoring process that is now used worldwide. Under his leadership, ProctorU has become the largest provider of online exam security in the industry. Jarrod has been a prominent advocate for academic integrity, specifically working with the US Congress and Department of Education on the issue of financial aid fraud. He is a sought after speaker in the areas of education technology, online proctoring, academic integrity and identity verification, and is active in many industry associations. Jarrod has been listed by The Birmingham Business Journal as one of Birmingham’s Top 40 Professionals Under 40 and named one of the 20 people to Lead Birmingham in the next 20 years by BHM Biz Magazine. As a former student of the University of Florida, he has been honored four consecutive times with the Gator 100 award.

Extended Abstract

Ten years ago, ProctorU brought one of the first live online proctoring solutions to institutions of higher education. Today, we’re the first to bring you a multi-layered live online proctoring service that’s also backed by artificial intelligence. In this session, you’ll learn about the technical features that make our new Live+ solution more beneficial for instructors, better for test-takers, and more effective than any other live or automated system available. We’ll take you behind the scenes into the minds of our engineering and product development teams to uncover how artificial intelligence is not only changing the way we proctor exams today but how it will affect future testing and proctoring methodologies.

We’ll also share how we’re using data analytics to track and validate the effectiveness of our solutions at the global, institution and individual course levels. You will walk away armed with data about the prevalence of cheating in online programs that you can use as a benchmark. And learn how you can use data to determine the right mix of online proctoring services to protect academic integrity while also managing costs.
