So in this context, there is a facility available where student can log into the system and can record answers for the particular question. So in case of say exam, you might have asked 10 questions to the student, Student will visit first question and it will be attempted by the student in the form of oral answer it will be completely recorded against that question. And similarly, whenever student will turn to visit next question. Next oral exam answer can be attempted by the student so candidate need to start the recording and say answers aloud and clear. And then stop the recording as soon and answers is recorded.
So this is quite a simple mechanism. Where if you would like to conduct oral exam or viva exam of thousand plus candidate simultaneously, then you can easily assign such oral or viva exam, the student can log into the system using their mobile device or any device like a laptop or desktop and record their answers for the respective questions and there is a facility available where you can assign one or more examiner’s evaluators who are going to, listen to the answers and allocate marks for the individual questions.

So examiner’s can listen to it at their preferred time. So you can easily achieve scalability associated with oral or viva where thousands of students can attend oral or viva Exam simultaneously.
But at the same time examiner’s can evaluate it at their preference. Similarly, if that oral or viva assessment need to be evaluated by multiple examiner’s, then you can assign that evaluation process for the multiple examiners as well.
