Webcam Theatre

12 February 2021

There are instructors that seem to think that using a webcam to watch you during a test stops you from cheating on online exams. Webcams don't stop people from cheating. Cheaters cheat and honest people don't. It's not hard to figure out. Webcam use is for security theatre so the instructor feels better not to mention an invasion of privacy for the student.
