Brief Abstract

Join ProctorU for a deep dive into the newly-released integration between Pearson MyLab and ProctorU Auto online proctoring.


Lynn Colgin has spent the last 23 years in Higher Education in executive roles with Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and, most recently, more than four years with ProctorU. Throughout his career, his efforts have been focused on developing innovative partnerships and solutions that utilize the latest technologies to upgrade the overall learning experience. In each of his roles, he has led academic efforts at the national level and engaged with faculty to ensure non-traditional solutions were implemented to meet their department and institution-wide needs. As one of the primary architects within Pearson and McGraw-Hill's Learning Solutions teams, he was able to rewrite the roles for utilizing resources and cultivating partnerships. These foundational skills were brought to ProctorU where he leads partnership efforts to develop cutting-edge, student-focused solutions that provide faculty with unique capabilities for their classrooms and online learning environments.
