Tonight, the University of Ottawa Students’ Union, Board of Governors officials, Senate officials and 18 recognized student governments, who represent over three-quarters of the student body, have written to President Fremont expressing constructive, researched concerns about the use, current and planned, of the Respondus proctoring software in the Spring/Summer and Fall 2020 semesters.We applaud the Faculties of Common Law, Civil Law and Engineering who have discouraged or banned the use of parts of the software in their faculties. We call on uOttawa’s 7 other faculties to follow suit.We call on the University of Ottawa to work with us on a mutually agreeable framework for virtual learning in the Fall 2020 semester, taking into account affordability, asynchronous delivery of classes and the extension of compassionate academic regulations.

Hey Comp Sci. The University of Ottawa is planning to force students to use Respondus Lockdown browser and monitoring. This is a gross invasion of student privacy and insults the integrity of every student.Help us put a stop to this. Sign the petition now at upetition.ca or the link in our bio.
