New Webinar: Distance Learning and Accreditation | Myths & Mandates – What You Need to Know
May 24, 2012
There are good reasons for why online exam integrity has become a critical success factor for a number of accreditation and distance education expansion initiatives. Online test integrity and student authentication issues can halt the expansion of an institution’s online program and potentially threaten its reputation and accreditation status.
In order to remain competitive, colleges and universities must take proactive measures to ensure the technologies and practices securing their distance learning programs are designed to anticipate future mandates of the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA). Implementing stringent security measures in anticipation of this forthcoming policy will ensure an institution’s place at the front of accreditation readiness. In the increasingly competitive world of online learning, the ability to demonstrate a gold standard of integrity lends credibility and adds a competitive edge to an institution’s online learning program.
Discover how the University of West Alabama implemented a secure testing environment across its online programs and how technology solutions are a key part of their re-accreditation strategy. These solutions added security measures such as biometric identity verification and remote proctoring technologies to online learning initiatives. Register for this webinar
