Abstract. Technological developments have paved the way for courses, trainings and assessments to be made online remotely in education and employment. In the meantime, over the years, the demand for online distance learning has increased rapidly. Eventually, it has been seen that this is a necessity and it has become widespread during the COVID-19 pandemic period. As can be seen in the example of massive online open courses, although remote learning is carried out online, perhaps the most important problem is how to evaluate the relevant courses safely and reliably. Thus, remote online proctoring is becoming an increasingly popular and needed issue. In this study, the issue of conducting the examination remotely online via internet-connected video and audio communication will be evaluated. Furthermore, the solution called vProctor was developed to contribute to the elimination of deficiencies in remote online proctoring using artificial learning. Overall, it has been observed that the proposed solution is managed to determine inappropriate behaviors like cheating in the online assessments.
