Two important notes about YuJa Test Proctoring Tool
- YuJa Test Proctoring will no longer be available after July 31, 2024.
- The process of using YuJa Test Proctoring will change in the spring semester.
What is happening: YuJa has informed the North Dakota University System (NDUS) that their YuJa Test Proctoring program will no longer be available after the end of our contract, July 31, 2024. YuJa’s lecture capture, video recording, and storage tools will not be affected.
Who does this affect: Instructors using YuJa Test Proctoring for Fall 2023, there will be no change. For instructors who plan to use YuJa Test Proctoring in Spring 2024, there is a new process starting January 1, 2024. Spring 2024 students will need to use a special download of the YuJa desktop application that includes the Test Proctoring feature. This download will be available in the NDUS Knowledge Base at YuJa Proctoring Desktop Application.
Why is this happening? YuJa is discontinuing the current Test Proctoring feature.
How can I use YuJa Test Proctoring in the Spring? For Instructors using test proctoring in Spring 2024, students will need to use a special download (an older version of YuJa) that will include the option for test proctoring. Instructors should include instructions for students to use the specified YuJa desktop application download when taking YuJa proctored tests in the course.
Please note, NDSU does not have an online test proctoring solution beyond the end of this contract.
Change to Process for Adding TAs, Instructors, and Other Users to Blackboard Learn Original Courses
As of July 26th, 2023, NDSU Instructors are no longer able to add TAs, Instructors, and other users directly to Blackboard Learn Original courses. Departments are required to notify the Office of Registration and Records to add TAs or Instructors to current courses in Campus Connection (note, an employee ID will be required for this to occur). Once the TA or Instructor has been created in Campus Connection, their name will show up for the departments to add them to course sections in CLSS. This step is required to ensure compliance with FERPA and access to student records. Once they have been added to CLSS they will be assigned to the section in Campus Connection, which will populate them into the Blackboard Learn Original course.
If you have questions, please reach out to the Office of Registration and Records at 231-7981 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also remind you of this process before the fall semester begins.
