I’m thinking about Google Authenticator: https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-authenticator/ but have no experience of making this work.

Theoretically this plugin will provide an algorithym transmitted by a QR code to the student who will need to download a free app for a smartphone. Then when wishing to login to my LMS secure area the app provides a one-time code to grant access.

While this does not entirely eliminate the risk of exam fraud (the student can give their phone plus the app to a conspiring cheat) the proportionality for Level 1 and 2 NVQs makes this a sensible approach, if the technology can be made to work.

Any experience of using this tool would be massively welcomed, as would an alternative more simple approach. My nervousness about making this work is understandable I’m sure.

Views, ideas welcomed.
