One thing to think about is whether your students will have reliable internet and/or be able to attend synchronous class sessions (they may have children home from school now, be in a different time zone, or be caring for sick loved ones). Since we don’t have an official proctoring service, you may be setting yourself up for an overly complex situation where students connections freeze, webcams aren’t working, etc. While you could potentially use this method, we’re generally advising faculty to lean heavily on the honor code and trust our students in this time of crisis. I’m happy to brainstorm more if proctoring is something you really want to try to do, but it’s o.k. to pull back expectations regarding what you would have done in a face to face class given the situation and keep it as simple as possible when looking for a solution.
