One of your online courses may require students to participate in an ID verification system. The identification technology is from a company called Biometric Signature ID and is called BioSig-ID throughout the Canvas course. This new software system is used within Canvas to verify a students’ ID using just your mouse, touchpad, stylus or touch screen.

You will need to follow the instructions within Canvas to enroll and verify your identity.  You will then be required to verify your identity at certain times before gradable events. It is important to remember the password you create with this new identification system.

Detailed instructions will be visible inside each Canvas course that uses BioSig-ID under the Modules area. If you have questions please ask your instructor, use the knowledge base to find a solution to your question or submit a ticket for further assistance.
