NetExam partners with Proctor U – enables Remote Online Proctoring
As more courses turn to online education as a viable certification platform, maintaining testing integrity is critical to the success of a certification program. Online remote proctoring has evolved into a secure solution and NetExam has partnered with ProctorU, one of the premier online proctoring services.

ProctorU has developed a safe and secure environment to manage the proctoring process. Proctors use a three-step approach to authenticate a student’s identity: see the student, see what they’re doing and know who they are. NetExam developers and engineers have worked with ProctorU technical teams to develop an API that lets the Administrator enable remote proctoring in a course, and for the student to click a button and schedule a proctored exam with a proctor from ProctorU.

NetExam partners with Payment Express providing a new global payment gateway
NetExam is working to provide you with a variety of great options for payment processing. Our engineers have integrated Payment Express - a premier global leader in payment technology as a new payment gateway available in NetExam. KB

Single Sign On with SFDC OAuth Login
One of our goals is to make using NetExam easier. Now your learners can have a single sign on with their SFDC credentials! Learners who have an SFDC login can choose the “Login from SFDC” option. KB

Activity Widget - User Group Activities
Speaking of social learning, this widget will display the learner’s User Group activities such as whose taking what courses, certification enrollments, completions and more with people that belong to the learner’s Primary User Group. Admins can go to General: Learner Portal Settings: User Type and drag-n-drop the Widget into the layout.

Calendar Invite single-click scheduling in Outlook
This is a nice little bonus feature that Outlook users will love! When a learner enrolls in an ILT class, the enrollment email includes a calendar invite. Click and schedule right in Outlook!

Enhanced Talent Management Module
NetExam continues to build a robust competency architecture including several components typically used in competency management. In addition to training and certification as a measure of competency, NetExam includes a Talent Management module that provides additional competency assessment criteria. The Talent Management module tracks, manages and reports on competencies to help determine and manage gaps in the team's capabilities. KB

Vidyard Integration
Using Salesforce? Using Vidyard? Now you can use both with NetExam. Vidyard is an innovative video management application that provides lots of user data related to the video. Primarily used in marketing and sales applications, the availability of video use data works extremely well in a learning management system as well. We like it because of its easy integrations with Salesforce. NetExam has enabled the integration of Vidyard video as a resource available for lessons.  KB

Social Learning Tab
Social learning is a powerful additive to engaged learning. Now you can enable the “Social Learning” tab from the User Role Add/Edit page. This will display a separate tab in the student site where the student can open Media Defined’s own social platform – Ensamba. You should check out Ensamba – social learning for business with Interests, Badges, Points, and more. KB

User Group Report Tab
Our research indicates many managers work with several tiers of user groups and need to view certification info selectively. We’ve enabled this function through a Tab that is implemented in the Student Portal. From the tab, group managers can view the summary of certifications, course enrollments, and completions for their assigned user groups. KB

  • Oracle Sales Cloud Integration

This integration is bidirectional, with NetExam receiving Partner and Contact Data from the Oracle Sales Cloud and NetExam sending training completions to the Oracle Sales Cloud.

  • ETL Process

Businesses often manage data from a variety of data sources and use a number of data analysis tools to produce business intelligence. Training data is usually one dimension used to execute such a complex data strategy. The data must be able to travel securely between systems and apps. To facilitate this, NetExam has introduced a mechanism that allows clients to extract specific data from the system into an external repository. This architecture is done using processes that fetch the data and place the data as CSV files at a designated secure FTP location or network-accessible location. Read more

  • Cohort Learning Plans

Cohort-based learning is a learning method where learners learn and collaborate about a specific topic at the same time. These learning plans typically have a duration of several months. It is a common and proven approach used by universities, colleges, and MOOC courses. Cohort Learning plans can be used in scenarios like partner/customer onboarding, advanced topics, or in any situation where "batches" of learners undergo training. Read more

NetExam now supports configurable recertification workflows. Administrators can configure the required courses for recertification. The recertification requirements can optionally vary based on whether the certification has not expired or by the amount of time it has been since expiration.
