xToledo is the online exam environment of the KU Leuven Association where an exam or assignment can be taken with the help of Toledo tools and every lecturer can check on the progress of the exam. This exam can be extra secured in combination with the online supervision tool Proctorio.
Toledo is the electronic learning environment of the KU Leuven Association. Here a lecturer can offer or organize assignments, group works, digital exams, synchronized classes with Blackboard Collaborate and so on. When Toledo is used for a digital exam, often times this will be done in a so called ‘exam course’ in xToledo instead of the Toledo course itself. This because xToledo keeps tabs on certain browser actions of the student. Since xToledo stands separate of Toledo, the learning materials in the Toledo course will not be accessible in xToledo. This environment is not only for digital exams but can also be used for making assignments.
Proctorio is a tool for remote online supervising. All actions on the screen and the webcam view are fully captured. On top of that it is possible to set some limitations, like disabling copy and paste, opening other applications on your computer, browsing other websites and so on. With the help of artificial intelligence all registered data is processed giving the lecturer an overview of all that happened during the exam. Like gazing away from the screen, other people appearing in view and so on.
