SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 22, 2019

Educational technology and remote proctoring leader, Proctorio, has processed online exams in nearly every country of the globe.

More precisely, Proctorio's global footprint has reached a record breaking 201 countries, with all but five countries in the world (Equatorial Guinea, French Guiana, Eritrea, Solomon Islands, and North Korea) not using Proctorio's learning integrity platform.

As Proctorio's reach expands, the company continues to experience concurrent internal growth, having officially opened the doors to its second US office in downtown Phoenix, which is located within a Hubzone, and a brand new German office in Munich.

With the company's exam volume hitting over 10,000 exams/day, there is no doubt that remote proctoring is becoming a global trend as institutions choose to utilize the solutions Proctorio has to offer.

As the usage map indicates, exam volume is currently highest in the US, where schools like WGU (Western Governors University) have reported proctoring a total of 2,000,000 high-stakes assessments from March ‘09 to January ‘19.

Meanwhile, schools like ASU (Arizona State University) have formed a joint venture with Draper Associates and GSV Capital to increase investment in educational technology–indicating a cross-sector push towards global transformation in the education space.

As times change, so does the quintessential definition of a student. The once known characterization of a student is now amalgamating into a much broader, more encompassing definition that sees them as; learners on mobile devices and people with time-based barriers to learning such as work, family care and military duty.

Apart from the obvious benefits that remote proctoring offers, like saving learner's time and money, it also provides the same learning opportunities as face to face classrooms, but in digital learning environments.

Moreover, a growing lack of infrastructure and readily available computer labs to scan exam condition environments and an increased focus on work-based apprenticeships will only be driving demand for remote proctoring solutions worldwide.

As modern companies align their learning and assessment strategies to their actual organizational needs, their need for remote proctoring of these assessments will also be stimulated.

Whether at an academic or corporate level, there is no doubt that remote proctoring is fast becoming an ever present global necessity in all educational processes.

Mike Olsen, Proctorio's CEO, said, "By protecting integrity in all learning environments and fostering new technologies to support innovation in education, we are doing our part to increase the availability of high quality education around the globe. Looking at our global impact for just this last year, alone, is incredible and it makes us really excited to see what the future of learning looks like."

Mike Olsen will be presenting as part of the Venture Track at the 2019 ASU GSV Summit on April 8–10th, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego. The presentation day will take place Monday from 3-4pm in Coronado B.
