Remote Invigilation

Our remote invigilation solution allows learners to sit their exams in a safe environment so that they can stay on track with achieving their qualifications throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is remote invigilation?

Remote invigilation allows learners to take their examination from a quiet, internet enabled room in their home (or other chosen location) with a remote invigilator using an online screen sharing application or software.

The invigilator must be able to see the candidate, their environment and their computer at all times during the assessment. The assessment must be completed under exam conditions.

NOCN remote invigilation

NOCN now offer a web-based remote invigilation platform which can be used on any computer without the need to download software. View a demonstration of how the platform works below:
