In most courses, you are asked to verify your identity before taking each proctored exam. As you setup the proctoring software and prepare to take the exam, you will receive a prompt to take a photo of your photo ID using your webcam.
- Follow the instructions in the Secure Browser to position your ID in front of your webcam. Generally, the best position for a photo of an ID card is 8-12 inches (20-30 centimeters) from the camera, with the ID card centered relative to the camera.
- When you are ready to take the photo, select Take ID Photo.
There is a countdown before the camera takes the photo.
- Preview and confirm that your photo is clear, and can be used to verify that your name and photo match the photo of yourself and the name on your account.
- If the photo is clear, select the checkbox and select Confirm ID Photo.
If the photo is not clear, select Retake ID Photo to try again.
Next Step: Scan your room and desk using a webcam.
