Online exams using BigBlueButton or Webex - teachers' guide

BigBlueButton or Webex Meetings are best suited for proctoring online exams in small groups or discussing submissions with individuals and small groups.

For a stable connection during the exam, please use BigBlueButton with a maximum of 30 cameras running. For larger groups, please use Webex Meetings.

Please ensure that all students have the technical equipment necessary to be proctored online. If this is not possible, you must provide an alternative form of examination. Also, students must be informed about the examination mode sufficiently in advance.
