Biometric identity and motion analysis specialist, KeyLemon is the latest to join the Blackboard Partnerships Program, bringing its facial recognition solution to the company’s online education portal, Blackboard Learn.
KeyLemon says its biometric ID solution will enable faster authentication for Blackboard Learn users that also enhances the online learning experience. Specifically, Blackboard Learn customers can leverage the KeyLemon face recognition plugin to enable identity verification for online test takers, while also improving administrative security.
Verifying identity in online education can pose unique challenges related to test proctoring, attendance and student loan fraud. But KeyLemon’s biometrics solutions promise quick and accurate motion analysis, as well as face and voice recognition.
KeyLemon’s face recognition algorithms capture and match a 20-point facial “fingerprint” to database records in just milliseconds.
In addition to authentication, future developments of KeyLemon’s education-focused solutions will also assess head and eye position, as well as monitor emotional responses. This information can then be saved for later analysis or viewed in real time, allowing educators to tailor their presentations as if their students were present in a traditional classroom. Upcoming features will also include hybrid face/voice identification.
KeyLemon’s biometric security solutions will act as a supplement to existing username/password logins. Using the company’s proprietary combination of face and voice recognition, KeyLemon’s solution can be easily integrated into any system or application to provide access to devices, online services and financial transactions.
