Schools and universities have had to move to online instruction and accelerate digital transformation efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, this introduces new risks.
Jumio’s biometric-based identity verification solutions help schools, universities and other educational institutions know with certainty that online students are who they say they are, no matter their location.
Know that only enrolled students are attending classes and lectures.
Create a quick and easy registration experience for new students, no matter where they are.
Authenticate students prior to online exams.
Ensure remote students are given proper credit for completed work.
Simplify the student enrollment process while avoiding the time and expense of validating every new student in person. Students can complete the online identity verification process in just seconds.
Ensure that the student attending e-learning classes or taking an online exam is in fact the enrolled student. At enrollment, Jumio simply asks the student to take a selfie, from which a biometric template is created. When a student attends a class or attempts to take an online exam, they take a fresh selfie, creating a new biometric template that is immediately compared to the original template. This proves with a very high level of assurance that the student logging in is the actual registered student.
The enrollment and authentication process is simple and requires little time to complete. Many students are comfortable with biometric-based processes because similar identity verification tools are used in a growing number of industries including the finance, retail and healthcare sectors.
Given the rise of spoofing (the act of using a photo, video or different substitute for an authorized person’s face), Jumio employs state-of-the-art liveness detection to ensure that the student creating an account, attending a class or taking an online exam is physically present.
