Over the last ten years, e-learning has played a very important role in education. A leading Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), reports having 70 million students, 1.2 million teachers across 7.5 million courses. Whilst e-learning has introduced flexibility and remote/distance-based learning, there are still aspects of course delivery that rely upon traditional approaches. The most significant of these is examinations. Students are still required to attend physical testing centres in order to ensure strict testing conditions are applied. Whilst research has begun to propose solutions in this respect, they fundamentally fail to provide the integrity required. This research will explore the feasibility of developing robust online testing environments that can provide the same or better levels of testing integrity than current physical centres provide.
