So, ASU requires the use of the "Respondus Lockdown Browser" for exams. And guess what. It doesn't support Linux. Heck, it even detects if it's running under a VM so I have no choice but to install Windows.
Luckily ASU provides a free Windows License.
I'm just scared that windows will mess up my Linux installation. I have Linux on a SSD, and an extra HDD for files, where I'll install windows. Hopefully noting blows up.
I'm using UEFI, and ill be installing windows on a different physical disk. So it affect the bootloader. But windows is windows.
@kensp Windows Installer WILL overwrite your bootloader. Just make sure you have a live CD of your distro to restore it
@kensp god damn, really? UA didn't require anything like that
We needed that for the math placement tests too. It basically records your webcam and microphone, and prevents you from opening any windows when writing the exam.
@kensp @Batcastle Now that I think about it, there was one class at UA where they insisted on a similar program to take exams. I flat out told them that my computer doesn't even have a webcam or microphone, so therefore I could not meet the requirements of the app.
Which is true...if you are talking my desktop computer ;)
Also because I was an online student, they wanted me to send in a scan of my gov't ID. No f'ing way.
I opted instead to do an in-person proctor.
Maybe you can do that?
@kensp That's really horrible.
