Dallas, TX, July 29, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Biometric Signature ID, Inc., (BSI) today announced that BioSig-ID™, the company’s signature gesture biometric technology for identity authentication, is now available within the Pearson LearningStudio online learning platform.
BioSig-ID is a software-only solution to verify student “signatures” that, combined with an additional layer of security called Click-ID, offers a robust, multi-factor authentication process that provides institutions with a compliance solution for the new federal regulation that requires institutions to verify the identify of every online student for accreditation purposes. The solution also can help reduce helpdesk and proctoring costs.
Experts have predicted that by 2015, there will be 25 million post-secondary students in the US taking classes online. While this growth is good news for students and online colleges, the need to manage the verification process of their students as required by federal law can be costly. Adding BSI as a technology partner will help Pearson eCollege customers keep administrative tasks associated with their growth to a minimum and provide a transparent solution to students that is low-cost and easy to use while maintaining the highest level of student integrity.
BSI’s Identity Management software does not require additional hardware or software downloads; can be used on any PC anywhere and anytime; does not collect personal identifying information; and tracks and reports all interactions.
“Partnering with Pearson eCollege, a trusted leader in the learning management space, was a logical progression in our efforts to provide our low-cost identify proofing solution to schools,” said Jeff Maynard, CEO, Biometric Signature ID. “One of the benefits to integrating our user-friendly technology with Pearson LearningStudio is the added flexibility it will give to educators, enabling their regulatory compliance efforts and providing confidence in knowing who is using their systems.”
“We are pleased to offer our customers ways to tackle the increasingly important area of reducing student cheating,” said Matt Leavy, CEO of Pearson eCollege. “With the integration between our platforms, we can help protect schools’ academic integrity and the reputation of their online programs.”
