What is RPNow?

Remote Proctor Now (RPNow) by Software Secure is an online remote proctoring service. RPNow offers students a way to take their online, proctored exams at home and on their own time. With internet access, a web cam, and a microphone, students can complete their proctored exams without having to travel to, schedule, or pay another physical test center. UAA eLearning has secured a contract with RPNow so there will be no additional cost to students in a UAA eLearning/online course.

Why use it?

RPNow allows students to complete their proctored exams from their own home, using their own device, and at a time of day convenient to them. Physical test centers often have limited hours and require appointments in advance which is not always convenient to students for many reasons.

Who can use it?

RPNow is available to students taking an online course through the UAA campus. Instructors must first approve and setup RPNow for their exams before students will be able to use it.

If you would feel more at ease going over RPNow in person, consider scheduling a help session with us. We can meet with you on main campus or schedule a Skype session to go over more details.
