French court suspends use of TestWe procctoring platform


An administrative court in Montreil, France issued a preliminary ruling ordering the Paris-based Distance Learning Institute to suspend its use of the e-proctoring platform TestWe, which uses facial recognition and algorithmic analysis to monitor students.Video and sound analysis track students' eye movements and their surroundings, a practice the court ruled disproportionate. The case was brought by a group of students represented by La Quadrature du Net and casts doubt on the legality of protoring apps under GPDR.
