Canvas

Canvas is Temple University’s Learning Management System (LMS). All online courses and most face-to-face courses use Canvas to host discussion boards, assignments, link to videos, keep track of grades, and more. When a Canvas course is structured well, faculty create a positive online environment for students, where expectations are clear and assignments are easy to find. By placing material on Canvas for students to review prior to class, faculty can use classroom time for active learning strategies and other engaging activities that take learning to higher levels.

Students: For Canvas Guides, please visit the Canvas Community
Faculty: Please contact the Online and Digital Learning Department to create your Canvas course or to receive Canvas templates.

Examity® Online Proctoring

Since 2013, the Fox School of Business has partnered with Examity®, an online proctoring service, to ensure the academic integrity of online assessments. Both graduate and undergraduate classes at Fox make use of Examity® to live monitor and review students during assessments. Learn more below about Examity® and how it works here at Fox.

With the internet readily accessible via smartphones, computers and tablets, students can easily search for anything online. Due to the nature of assessments, live, online proctoring helps to curtail cheating and academic dishonesty through student authentication and monitoring during exams or assessments. Cheating does a disservice to the student and to the school. Fox takes academic integrity seriously as it is key to the success of our students and programs.

Fox has reviewed the different online proctoring services available and found Examity® the superior product currently on the market. Examity® offers individual, live proctoring sessions that are recorded and reviewed by proctors. Their affordable solution and customer services are best in class.

Examity® is assessable through your Canvas course. Students will be required to set up an account with Examity® for authentication and payment purposes. Authentication includes uploading a copy of a student ID or driver’s license, providing security questions, and keystroke analysis. Students can register, cancel and reschedule assessments with ease. Most exams are available for a 24-72 hour window enabling students to register to complete an assessment 24/7.

To complete an assessment, students will log in with a proctor in a WebEx-like environment. After authentication, they can begin the assessment, which requires audio and video streaming throughout the duration of the assessment. Each assessment is recorded, reviewed for infractions and shared with faculty. Students should arrive 10-15 minutes early for the assessment to account for authentication.

Students must have a webcam and headset microphone for assessments. They must be seen and heard for the duration of an assessment and will not be permitted to access the assessment if their equipment does not work. A high-speed internet connection is required. Students should have at least 8Mb download and 5Mb upload speeds in order to take the assessment. We recommend students test their internet speed prior to logging in with the proctor (www.speedtest.net).

Examity® prices vary depending upon the length of an assessment. A one-hour exam or assessment will cost $15; a two-hour exam or assessment will cost $22. There are additional fees for cancellation or registration less than 24-hour prior to the exam or assessment and there are no refunds for missed or cancelled exams.

All faculty teaching online can select to use Examity® for their course assessments. Courses using Examity® will have it listed in their syllabi at the beginning of the semester. Each course that selects to use Examity may do so for several assessments over the semester.

Examity® technical support is available 24/7 to assist with any problems. You can reach them at support@examity.com , 855-392-6489.


ProctorU® Online Proctoring

Since 2019, the Fox School of Business has partnered with ProctorU®, an online proctoring service, to ensure the academic integrity of online assessments. Both graduate and undergraduate classes at Fox make use of ProctorU® to monitor students during, and review behavior after, assessments. Learn more below about ProctorU® and how it works here at Fox.

With the internet readily accessible via smartphones, computers, and tablets, students can easily search for anything online. Live online proctoring helps to curtail cheating and academic dishonesty through student authentication and monitoring during exams and assessments. Cheating undermines the quality of teaching and learning in universities. Fox takes academic integrity seriously, as it is key to the success of our students and programs.

Fox has reviewed the different online proctoring services available and found ProctorU® to be a superior product currently on the market. ProctorU® offers several types of exam monitoring, including individual live proctored sessions that are recorded and reviewed by proctors and auto proctored sessions that are recorded with artificial intelligence based behavior flagging. Their affordable solutions and customer service are unmatched.

ProctorU® is integrated into your Canvas course. Students will be required to set up an account with ProctorU® for authentication and payment purposes. Authentication includes uploading a copy of a student ID or driver’s license, providing security questions, and keystroke analysis. Students can register for, cancel, and reschedule assessments with ease. Most exams are available for a 24-72 hour window, enabling students to complete an assessment at their convenience within that window. ProctorU services are available 24/7. It is recommended to schedule your exam 72 hours or more before the exam window so an additional fee isn’t applied.

To complete an assessment, students will log in to the ProctorU browser extension. After authentication, they can begin the assessment, which requires audio and video streaming throughout the duration of the assessment. Each assessment is recorded, reviewed for infractions, and shared with faculty. Your instructor can also login and view any of the proctoring sessions in real time.

Students must have a webcam and microphone, reflective surface or mobile phone with a front-facing camera, and the latest version of Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox for assessments. They must be seen and heard for the duration of an assessment, and will not be permitted to access the assessment if their equipment does not work. A reliable internet connection is required. Students should have at least 1.5Mb download and 1Mb upload speeds in order to take the assessment. We recommend students test their internet speed prior to logging in with the proctor (www.speedtest.net).

ProctorU® prices vary depending upon the length of an assessment. An assessment up to two hours will cost $9 – $16. There may be additional fees for late registration less than 72 hours prior to an exam or assessment or cancellation. There are no refunds for missed exams.

All faculty teaching online can choose to use ProctorU® for their course assessments. Courses using ProctorU® will have it noted in their syllabi at the beginning of the semester. Each course that selects to use ProctorU® may do so for several assessments over the semester.

ProctorU® live chat and phone support are available 24/7 to assist with any problems. Live chat is accessed within your Canvas course, and you can reach them by phone at 855-722-8678.


Video Vault

The Video Vault is a compilation of all online lecture videos that have been produced by the Fox Online & Digital Learning department and Fox School of Business faculty.

The Video Vault is a resource available to all Temple University students during their studies at Temple and beyond. As long as students retain their username and password, they will always have access to the Video Vault.

Students are encouraged to use the Video Vault during their coursework, especially if they are in upper-level courses and need to review concepts from prior classes. Reviewing previous concepts from earlier classes make it easier to recall and apply them in more challenging classes, allowing students to be more successful as they progress throughout their studies at Fox.

Zoom allow students to “meet” their professor and peers face-to-face, even if they live across the country, or across the globe. This level of interaction allows online courses to be as engaging as possible, while maintaining the flexibility of an online course.
