Online courses are not credible without rigorous online exam proctoring services. Shinkan-Edge is the one-stop solution to this problem
MUMBAI, India, April 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Online courses hold a lot of appeal for the younger generation, and many enroll in such courses for skilling, reskilling, or upskilling to advance their careers. Online education is excellent for broadening one’s horizons and offering a plethora of options to pursue.
While E-Learning, is extremely convenient and growing at a fast pace, it comes with the risk of not being taken seriously by some students and corporates. The reason for this is, that the perception of assessments conducted at the end of the course is not as trusted as offline exams, because of rampant malpractices. In turn, the corporates lose their faith in the system. All of this affects one’s ability to learn and understand the importance of online education. All candidates are meant to be held at par, but that is not the case. The cheating tactics used by certain students during online exams fail to distinguish and short-change the deserving and honest candidates. As a result, in today’s market, online course certification lacks the same value as physical course certification because employers are unable to distinguish between honest learners and those who cheat. In simple words, online exam monitoring systems are not considered credible, due to which the candidate suffers.
Online assessments come hand in hand with the need for secure invigilation, just as offline exams do. What’s lacking is the stamp of credibility. Here’s where Shinkan-Edge comes into play, the best online proctoring software for online educators and recruiters with cheat-free virtual tests. If a candidate presents an online course certification with Shinkan’s stamp of approval, it’s credible.
On asking Abhijit Saxena, the founder of Shinkan, he said
“I believe that to educate and for skill development, learning is key, while to ensure genuine learning happens during the education process, secure assessments are key.
Lack of credibility in online assessments is one of the primary reasons why there is limited trust in online education. Shinkan, for the first time, has launched the most intelligent and robust AI-based tool – Shinkan-Edge which can certify the authenticity of any online assessment. It also ratifies impersonation during large-scale online recruitments by corporates. Shinkan-Edge is so powerful that it can even certify the authenticity of online exams!”
