London (UK), February 2020 - Through a new agreement with Proctorio, McGraw-Hill, a leader in learning science and digital learning tools, will offer remote proctoring and browser locking capabilities for assessments in its McGraw-Hill Connect® digital learning platform for college courses.
These services will be available for students and instructors beginning Fall 2020 across most McGraw-Hill Connect digital course materials.
