UNC Online Update as of March 27, 2020 at 2:00pm:
On March 22, UNC Online informed instructors and students that due to the global nature of the pandemic, our online proctoring provider (Examity) is no longer able to conduct upcoming webcam/online proctored appointments, as their global facilities have shut down.
After exploring potential solutions at length, UNC Online has come to the conclusion that Examity will not be able to provide the UNC Online Proctoring System with a viable solution for exam proctoring during this academic term. Therefore, on Monday, March 30, all Spring Term exams will be removed from the UNC Online Proctoring System; students' appointments will be cancelled and refunds will be processed automatically within 3-5 business days. Instructors do not need to take any action individually; all exams will be removed using an automated process.
Unfortunately, UNC Online is unable to accommodate face-to-face courses that are moving to an online format. There are several roadblocks preventing us from providing this service. As this is a very fluid situation, UNC Online will update everyone if there is a future change to this policy.
If a campus chooses to require proctor exams for face-to-face courses that are moving to an online format, they must coordinate that effort outside of UNC Online. Please refer to information provided by the UNC System Office. (https://myapps.northcarolina.edu/digitallearning/).
The Office for Regional Initiatives offers professional exam proctoring services for students enrolled at UNC Pembroke as well as other universities within the University of North Carolina system.
As an approved site in the UNC Online Proctoring Network, UNC Pembroke's Proctoring Services is committed to enhancing the academic integrity of online and distance education courses by administering exams in a secure and professional environment.
