An ANU spokesperson has confirmed the use of Proctorio for the remainder of this year for certain examinations and examinations deemed “centrally timetabled” will remain remote.
The ANUSA Vice President Christian Flynn told Woroni that “ANUSA campaigned against the use of Proctorio in 2021, and [he], along with others in ANUSA, have continued to express concerns around the use of Proctorio to the University into 2021”. Moreover, ANUSA welcomed the efforts from courses and colleges that have opted out of using Proctorio.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) Professor Grady Venville has also confirmed that the current hybrid learning style will continue for Semester Two. This decision stems from SELT feedback last year, and the ANU claims it will ensure that both in-person and remote learning modules remain as interactive as possible.
To accommodate remote learning, the University will transform Melville Hall to allow students to have space on campus to attend online classes. The space will have private cubicles and group-study areas where students can “use [their] own ear buds or headphones and talk quietly while [they] participate in remotely delivered classes”. Melville Hall currently houses the Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre and the Examination and Graduation office.
