Hello, regarding the webcam requirement for online ARE exams, could you clarify which webcams are suitable and what the process will be? I think it would be helpful for everyone if NCARB could suggest a few specific models and brands so that everyone can be sure they have a compliant webcam. Will the webcam sit on top of the computer monitor or will each tester need to show the proctor his desk setup with the webcam in his hand before the test? Or does the webcam need a small tripod and will it be placed behind the tester and looking at the monitor during the test? Many webcams advertise some kind of 360 view, but this is ambiguous because it just means that the webcam hinge can swivel. Are webcams without a full swivel acceptable? Surely 360 view doesn't mean an expensive ($150-$300) 360 degree camera that looks like a small globe with multiple cameras that capture a 3D of the entire environment right?
