The past decade has seen the proliferation of elearning
and distance learning programs across a wealth of
discipline areas. In order to preserve maximum exibility in
outreach, student assessment based exclusively on remotely
submitted work has become commonplace. However, there is
also growing evidence that e-learning also provides increased
opportunity for plagiarism, with obvious consequences for learning
effectiveness. This paper reports on the development of a
prototype student authentication system, designed for use with
a graduate e-learning program. The proposed system can be
used to authenticate telephone-based oral examination which can,
in turn, be used to conrm a student’s ability in relation to
submitted assignments and on-line test results. The prototype
low-cost system is shown to be sufciently accurate to act as an
effective deterrent against plagiarism.
