Conduct Online Oral/Viva Exams


Viva exams are commonly utilized in the academic examination process for various purposes, such as end-of-semester exams, tutorials, or subject matter expert evaluations.

These exams typically require manual administration and the presence of an examiner to listen to students’ responses.

However, with the aid of technology, we can now scale up the entire process, allowing students to record their answers from any location for examiners to evaluate at a later time.

Thus, scalability can be achieved in the case of Viva exams. Let us delve into how this can be accomplished in a cost-effective manner.

Ways to convert Practical Exam into Viva Exam

There is a way to conduct your practical exams. You can ask the student to see a particular image/ video/ text. You can ask students to explain a particular diagram or steps related to practical exams.

Students can explain it and the system would record that answer in the form of a voice.

The entire voice associated with particular practical steps explained by the student would be recorded in the system. Students can view particular audio or video and answer the question by speaking.

It works on a minimum internet speed (less than 1 MBPS). Any remote student would be able to attempt the online practice exam.
