Getting Set-Up

Firstly, make sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome internet browser installed, as well as the Intelligent Remote Invigilation System (IRIS) extension.  

  1. Download the latest version of Google Chrome internet browser. Your browser must be used for all assessments using Intelligent Remote Invigilation System (IRIS). (LINK: https://www.google.com/chrome/)
  2. The Intelligent Remote Invigilation System (IRIS) Extension can be downloaded here or it can be located through the Google Chrome Web Store by searching “IRIS” (LINK: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/iris/jmgacjgobknfojonlckhndlamkfcjofm)

Please take care not to uninstall the IRIS Extension if you already have it as this could clear previously recorded videos that may not have been uploaded to our servers yet.

Check your device permissions

IRIS will need access to computer devices such as your webcam and microphone. Make sure that these devices are accessible by your browser.

For Windows users:

  • Go to Start Button -> Windows Settings -> Privacy
  • Click Camera under App Permissions on the sidebar
  • Enable both “Allow apps to access your camera” and “Allow desktop apps to access your camera”
  • Click Microphone under App Permissions on the sidebar

Security updates within browsers may block camera or microphone permissions by default. Make sure that the IRIS Extension has permission to access your webcam and microphone.
