With schools and colleges switching to digital monitoring, students feel that it is invading their privacy to some extent. In the current scenario, institutions have no other option but to impose online proctored exams as a part of their curriculum. As a result, some students resist the new norm of web proctoring, citing that sitting under the watchful eye of a webcam makes them slightly uncomfortable. On the other hand, educators find this as the best solution to keep an eye on thousands of students appearing for the exam.  

The global health crisis has made the world virtually active, especially the educational services industries undergoing a lot of changes. According to the World Education Services, the global e-learning market expects to grow to USD 331 billion by 2025 with the rise in Massive Open online courses (MOOC) from 6850 in 2016 to 9400 in 2017. Also, according to Holon IQ, the AI-based educational technology expenditure was USD 0.8 billion in 2018 and projected to be USD 6.1 billion until 2025.
