Before COVID and the last ten years, UVVG students took their asynchronous exams through the Moodle platform, but these only happened within the university’s laboratories.
What was their biggest challenge?
Due to the large number of students enrolled during the last course, when the pandemic started, it was complicated to supervise each student manually, so the UVVG determined that the best option was an AI-based proctoring solution, which led them to contact Smowltech.
How were exams conducted before SMOWL?
The UVVG has used the Moodle platform for asynchronous learning and exam tests for over ten years, but only within the university laboratories.
SMOWL was the perfect solution for the safe conduct of these exams.
UVVG chose the SMOWL service, which allowed them to monitor their students through the webcam of any device (including mobile phones) without needing installation.
What were the results?
Thanks to the SMOWL solutions, the Romanian university offered a fair and safe environment for all its students, recognising their knowledge, dedication, and effort.
- Authenticate the identity of users during the exam.
- Prevent fraud and unethical behaviour during the exam.
- Allow students to take their exams from anywhere.
“An advice to students: take your exam seriously because an owl is watching you.”Tripa Laviniu, IT Director and Moodle Administrator.
What does the UVVG of SMOWL like the most?
- The tool is so friendly and straightforward that it allows you to carry out your evaluation processes.
- The university maintained its prestige thanks to identity authentication and continuous student monitoring.
- The development of students is the core of UVVG, which is why they were looking for a solution that would allow them to improve the opportunities offered to them through a comprehensive and quality evaluation.
SMOWL will participate in the following UVVG projects
The Romanian university will continue to use SMOWL services to offer more flexibility and a safer environment for its students and community.
Moreover, the university has plans to expand its academic offer by creating new online study programs, demonstrating its commitment to the education of future generations based on technology and innovation.
These initiatives make the “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad a great option when choosing a university that fully meets the future demands of the labour market.
Internationalisation is important for UVVG
Its rector, Professor Coralia Adina Cotoraci, is very open to internationalisation. Proof of this is many international students and the numerous cooperation agreements the university has with many other universities and global companies.
Another critical aspect of its internationalisation plan is the digitalisation of the university.
