Online exams

In 2021, Examinations and Assessments worked with IT Services and other stakeholders to implement the e-assessment platform Inspera, to conduct online exams and accept summative coursework submissions.

During the first phase of the project, Inspera is being used primarily as a platform for students to submit their work or exam responses, while other processes are in place for authoring of exam papers and marking student work. Later, these functions may move to Inspera as well. Please see the Education IT website for more information (SSO login required).


  • WebLearn should no longer be used for any type of summative online submissions.
  • Canvas may be used for formative assessment, via the Assignments, Quiz and Discussions tools. Canvas has not been approved by the University for summative assessment.


The e-exams project is managed by the Education IT Team in IT Services.
