Penn State and Verificient to Create Online Authentication Tool
June 7, 2017

Penn State World Campus and Verificient Technologies announced an agreement to jointly develop a first-of-its-kind identity authentication and verification tool to address academic integrity issues with  online courses. The initiative will provide Penn State World Campus the ability to verify whether a student who logs into an online course, performs individual assignments and takes assessments is the same person the university admitted on registration day.

The tool is automated and scalable and within the institution's Canvas learning management system. It will be available at Penn State World Campus during the 2017-2018 academic year.
