  • Preview images of the online supervision for students

The examination statement has to be activated for all written online exams. You can activate the examination statement 30 minutes (in an exam environment) or 15 minutes (in a course environment) before the exam starts, so the students can read and accept them. As soon as the students have accepted the examination statement, they get access to the exam.

  1. Visit your course or exam environment on MyLEARN.
  2. Click on "Administrate" on the left side menu.
  3. On the new page click on the link "options".
  4. To change the settings click on the button „Bearbeiten“.
  5. Under exam mode you can find the examination statement. Click on "Yes" next to the examination statement.
  6. Set a date and a time for the activation. The starting date and time should be 30 minutes before the exam starts. The ending date and time should be 15 minutes after the exam. If you have BeAble students you may change the time of the ending date and time.

The automated online supervision can only activated in an exam environment, if you registered for it.

If you activated the automated online supervision the preview is automatically activated too. The preview allows students to see if their camera, audio and screen sharing is working during an exam. It is recommended to activate the preview and not to deactivate it because students feel more comfortable if they know that their technical equipment works.

In justified cases you can deactivate the online preview (see tutorial of "How do I activate the automated online supervision?")
