Taking a picture of your photo ID

In most courses, you are asked to verify your identity before taking a verified course or taking each proctored exam. As you setup the proctoring software and prepare to take the exam, you will receive a prompt to take a photo of your photo ID using your webcam.

  1. Follow the instructions in the Secure Browser to position your ID in front of your webcam.
  2. When you are ready to take the photo, select Take ID Photo. There is a countdown before the camera takes the photo.
  3. Preview and confirm that your photo is clear, and can be used to verify that your name and photo match the photo of yourself and the name on your account.
  4. If the photo is clear, select the checkbox and select Confirm ID Photo. If the photo is not clear, select Retake ID Photo to try again.

Next Step: Scan your room and desk using a webcam.
