Forced use of personal webcam and audio
PETITION in regard to forced use of personal webcam and audio during testing
To the teachers of NBCC and the NBCC Business Department.
We, the undersigned students, are against the forced use of personal webcam and audio features during testing. We feel that mandatory use of webcam and audio features during testing, especially the 360-scan feature, is a breach of privacy. These features were never stipulated in the course outlines and we believe that the Lockdown Browser prevents cheating without encroaching on a student’s right to privacy. As such, we recommend the following action:
- Immediate end of mandatory use of webcam and audio features for testing
- Evaluation of alternatives, which include input from the business students of NBCC
