Dutch news court rejects appeal against proctoring software by students from UvA.

"Gathering and processing user data is done only to the extent necessary for combating student fraud."

Bullshit. I guess the judge doesn't fully understand the software? The root invasion required is asymmetric, total and permanent, thereby disproportional.

And as the wealthy can more easily dedicate an exam computer for this spyware, it also increases inequality.

@mplammers I’m glad for paper exams now. That software is garbage. I never wanted it installed on my computer. I used to want electronic exams. Glad I didn’t have them. They barely had reliable WiFi.
