Distance Education & Proctoring

Distance Education

The University of Wisconsin Colleges offer four types of distance learning delivery systems: WislineWeb, Wisline Video, Streaming Media and Online.

WislineWeb uses an audio and computer link so that faculty and students can talk to each other and edit each other's documents in a real time classroom setting. A proctor is automatically assigned.

Wisline Video uses audio, computer links, and video connectivity so that faculty and students can not only converse but can also see each other in a real time classroom setting. A proctor is automatically assigned.

Streaming Media uses recordings of lectures so that students may watch and learn at a time that is best for them. Students must contact Tamara.Becker@UWC.EDU for proctoring.

Online, or Web-based, teaching is not in real-time. Students and faculty interact with each other as members of a class, over the Internet using the D2L online platform. UW Colleges online courses hardly ever meet at a particular time or place although they are structured within an academic semester time frame. See if you need a proctor. If a proctor is needed contact: WSH-Proctoring@uwc.edu
