Enable Proctorio Exam Proctoring for Blackboard-Integrated OWLv2

If you use Blackboard®, you can prevent cheating by using Proctorio®. Create a Blackboard test that requires Proctorio and use it to link to OWLv2. Your students will continue to be monitored by Respondus® while they complete their exam in OWLv2.

Note While Cengage supports our learning platform integrations with several Learning Management Systems, proctoring solutions are third party services that we do not directly support. The LMS and proctoring solution versions we have tested might not be the same versions you use. For this reason, your process and results might vary and Cengage cannot guarantee support for any third party proctoring service.

This procedure is for Blackboard courses with the Original Course View.

Proctorio is a browser extension and works only with Google® Chrome™.

Students should download the Proctorio extension ahead of time, or they will be prompted to do so when they open their assignment.

You must first create a password protected exam in OWLv2, and add a link to your exam Blackboard.
