WHAT:

Proctor.io (https://proctor.io), the only scalable and fully automated remote proctoring system, will present as a finalist during the SXSWedu LAUNCHedu competition, which takes place March 3-6, 2014 in Austin, Tex. As part of the SXSWedu LAUNCHedu event, Proctor.io will compete against nine other educational technology start-ups, giving demos and presentations to education industry leaders.

 

As online enrollment increases, universities require a scalable solution to ensure that students adhere to their academic integrity policies during online exams. Proctor.io is the only cost effective and scalable solution of its kind that provides students with a secure test environment.

 

“We are honored to be selected as finalists in such a prestigious event alongside other promising ed-tech start-ups. Proctor.io is excited to demonstrate the capability of our software on the largest stage in our field,” said Teddy Garland, founder and CEO of Proctor.io. “Universities face a unique challenge to provide online students a level playing field and the best education possible. This becomes more difficult as online enrollment increases.
