I'm interested in learning what possibilities there are - either from Blackboard inc, or carried out by schools/universities - to authenticate that the person logging into Blackboard to learn from an online course is, in face, the registered student?  Some universities are asking personal questions (think, "forgot your password" questions).


Knowing there are 3rd party authentication tools (within Respondus and ExamSoft, for example), are there other solutions out there that tie directly into Blackboard or does Blackboard have any plans in offer this feature?
