BioSig-ID is an authentication tool that uses biometrics to make it more difficult for unauthorized users to access secure data or commit fraud by posing as another individual. It is also used to minimize academic dishonesty in online courses. It is a requirement of SACSCOC that member institutions verify the identity of distance education students, and BioSig-ID helps us to fulfill that requirement.
BioSig-ID is fully integrated with the Instructure Canvas learning management system. The tool is intended for use only with fully online and hybrid course offerings.
