An online identity profile creation and verification service that will validate a person’s identity not just once, but throughout an entire online course.
A course admin enables Auth inside LMS settings and can then use it on any assignment throughout the course.
Users are prompted to set up Auth profile by connecting to a live proctor and establishing their own personalized multi-factor ID test. This process takes less than five minutes.
Users are re-authenticated prior to entering any assignments or learning modules where Auth is enabled.
A user’s profile is associated at the institution/organization level, so it follows the user across any course taken while enrolled.
Auth is still in development, but is available for early adopter beta use. As we move through beta testing, more features and LMS integrations will be added. The service is currently only available in the Canvas LMS, but will be available soon in Blackboard, Moodle and D2L.
When creating a Uauth profile, a user connects to a live proctor to establish their identity. US citizens will be asked to take a photo of themselves through their webcam, take a photo of a government-issued photo ID, answer a series of randomly-selected challenge questions pulled from public records, and establish a keystroke biometric ID. Non-US citizens will be required to do all of the above except the public record challenge questions.
Because user profiles are associated at the institution or organization level, a user only has to set up one profile that will be good for any course taken at each institution or organization where they are enrolled. The only reason a user would have to set up a separate profile is if they enroll in a new institution or organization.
Uauth can be enabled on any quiz, test, assignment or learning module. Users only have to take a photo and go through a keystroke ID evaluation. Photos and keystroke IDs are compared to those established during a user’s initial profile creation to determine a pass/fail status.
Users must complete the authentication process prior to accessing any area where Uauth is enabled. Course administrators are made aware of the pass/fail status of each user’s authentication and can address each situation as needed.

ProctorU helps me handle life as a mom, Army wife, full time employee, and student by offering exam times when it's most convenient for me. I love using ProctorU at home rather than taking a proctored exam at the local university's testing center. I also love that ProctorU's proctors are polite, professional, and very helpful.

ProctorU has been instrumental in providing Temple College online students with a fee-based convenience option for taking proctored exams if they are unable to use our on-campus testing centers. The service is very reliable, secure and easy to use for both students and faculty.

Introducing students to ProctorU is directly in line with Athabasca University's mission to reduce barriers to post-secondary education. This partnership creates an accessible, flexible and affordable option for AU exam invigilation that maintains the highest level of academic integrity.
President, Athabasca University Students' Union
The proctors were very attentive and helpful whenever there was an issue (which wasn't very often). ProctorU helps me achieve my educational goals by providing an easy and affordable way to complete my exams, especially being a Distance Education student in a totally different province. Working full-time and also going to school often times makes it challenging to schedule exams, but ProctorU is extremely flexible and convenient. Being able to write my exams without travelling is fantastic.
