Hi @PraveenMishra ,

Thanks for the feedback,

Could you kindly explain what you mean by "Toggle feature" and why you are mentioning Windows 10?

Were you using the Remote Exam live environment?

Hi,

My concern is that I was not able to toggle between exam window and the terminal, also, one screen is not enough to work comfortably.

I am sorry for mentioning windows 10, that's pointless, I don't know why I did that.

Hi @PraveenMishra ,

I believe the idea of allowing only a single screen was to have the testing experience similar between remote and testing center exams. There are also current technical limitations in enabling monitoring of multiple screens, which have been pushed back to prioritize migrating certifications to the remote environment.

Keyboard shortcuts to toggle windows are disabled on purpose on the remote exam image. Candidates (including me) have expressed an inconvenience with this and the feedback has been passed to the team. I would also encourage you to report feedback, so that it gains traction.
Meanwhile using the 'Activities hot corner' can help in toggling between windows.

Hi @charith1994,

EX407 (V7) was due for public release this week. The internal pilot tests were extended through this week at the last minute. The website was updated as part of it's original release. Apologies for the confusion. EX407 is expected to be available as a Remote Exam in about a week from now. 

Best Regards,

Shefeeq

Hi @yusuf-yazici ,

I think the answer is no, based on the rules:

Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable

Source: https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... 

I also do not see where one would configure that in that secure Remote Exams live environment...

Having said that maybe it's worth to clarify or modify the Getting Ready document, explicitally commenting on the use of IP Webcams? 

@shefeeqyr Could you kindly consolidate my answer?

Cheers,

IP Webcams and all other arrangements that would leverage a cellphone into a Webcam are a No currently.  One of the key policies of a remote exam as well as a testing center exam is that the cellphone of the candidate must not be in the vicinity, or switched off. 
If you walk into a Testing Center, the local point of contact would help with safekeeping of your phone.
 
Similarly, using an earplug or headphone is not allowed either (except under special medical circumstances that are reviewed and approved in advance).
This is to ensure that we minimize the presence of any device or medium that has the potential to render help or reference materials.
 
Particularly with a cellphone acting as a Webcam, there are considerations such as what would you do if you get a call/message in between, security questions of how/whether we can lockout a phone completely and make it act as a pure camera and so on.  Things that might see a solution in the future, but are not part of what could be brought out to the market in a short time.
To sum it up, IP cams, cellphone cams or a second laptop's integrated webcam are all not allowed for remote exams.
 
Best Regards,
Shefeeq
