Verificient & Instructure announce Alliance Partnership 

Partnership will support the integration of Verificient’s Proctortrack with the Canvas learning management system

NEW YORK (May 14, 2015) – Verificient Technologies, Inc., a technology company specializing in identity verification and online remote proctoring, announced a new alliance partnership with Instructure, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and creator of the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). Shared customers of the two companies will benefit from the seamless integration of Verificient’s Proctortrack in Canvas.

As a fully integrated multifactor biometrics behavioral application, Proctortrack provides automated remote proctoring for distance learners taking tests online. This combined solution fulfills the Department of Education’s federal mandated standards for identity verification and authentication requirements for distributing Title IV funds. Proctortrack replicates the security of traditional testing centers, while giving students the flexibility to take proctored tests online, anytime, anywhere on demand, with the ease of automation and complete scalability.

“We are all about ensuring the integrity of the online credential,” said Tim Dutta, CEO of Verificient Technologies. “Online degrees need to require the same rigor of student verification and authentication and consequently, hold equal value to traditional on-campus degrees and certificate programs. To uphold these standards, we felt that evolving into an alliance with Canvas, one of the most innovative learning management systems, was the next logical step in fully meeting the needs of our Canvas customers.”

Instructure’s alliance partnerships are designed to create a joint value-add between the partner and Canvas to help more fully meet the needs of customers and prospective customers. Instructure looks for partners that have tools and services that provide a great solution often requested by customers, and aligns with those that are good to work with both from a customer-facing perspective and from an internal programmatic perspective.

“Proctortrack is an ideal solution for Instructure clients looking for identity verification systems that easily integrate into Canvas,” said Melissa Loble, vice president of Partners and Programs at Instructure. “As online programs continue to grow, so will the need for Proctortrack to ensure programs’ integrity. Considering Verificient’s current relationship as a Premiere Partner with Instructure, we see this alliance as the perfect next step forward for our customers who want an easy to use learning management system with a built in identity verification system.”
