When Gainesville college student Rachel Henderson learned a test for her online class was administered 20 miles away in Dahlonega, she opted instead to use a fee-based mobile proctoring service called ProctorU. The result, she said, was “pretty easy and kind of strange.” The service allows students to take their tests from any computer that has a webcam and meets minimum system requirements. It also allows a proctor to view students over the webcam and access student computers remotely.
