Using a Virtual Proctor

Virtual proctoring is available at no charge to all students enrolled in TN eCampus courses.  

Virtual proctoring gives students flexibility in exam location by connecting to a live proctor via a webcam and computer. 

Because of social distancing, many on-ground testing centers cannot accommodate students for in-person testing at this time. TN eCampus strongly encourages the use of virtual proctoring, when proctoring is required. TN eCampus faculty are aware of the virtual proctoring resources available to their class. If you have questions about scheduling a virtual proctoring appointment or testing procedures in general, consult with your instructor.

Getting Started is easy!  Simply follow these steps. 

  1. Before your exam, please confirm you meet the virtual proctoring technical requirements.
  • Google Chrome is the preferred browser. Mozilla Firefox is a good alternative, bu the system check may reject Firefox under certain browser settings. Other browsers are not recommended. Disable popup blockers.
