Online exams using BigBlueButton or Webex - student guide

It is best to test a few days before the exam if you can get into BigBlueButton (BBB) or Webex and if your equipment is suitable for the exam.

If you do not have the technical equipment to be supervised during the exam with BigBlueButton or Webex, let your teacher now and they will arrange a different form of examination for you.

Recordings and screenshots of the online exam are explicitly forbidden.


Teachers will notify you in a timely manner when an exam is being proctored via BigBlueButton (BBB) or Webex. It is best to test access to BBB or Webex before the exam or ask instructors to set up a mock exam or mock meeting.
