Steve,
 
We've had discussions on two factor authentication for our distance students.  I believe we have about 4,000 of them, but most of them live in the local area. 
 
We are just starting this fall giving the students the option to pay for remote proctoring through Remote Proctor Now.  I believe it costs them $15 per exam.  They also have the option to come into a College testing center and take the exam for no cost.  They do have to provide a student ID or driver's license in both scenarios.  I believe we have worked on remote proctoring with other institutions in the past, but do not know if we still plan on using that now that we have the agreement with Remote Proctor Now.
 
We chose them because the require video cameras and watch the student during the exam.  If they see any signs of cheating, they send a report to the Distance Learning office and they review the recording to determine if any action needs to take place.  I believe they will go through the regular channels if they believe cheating has occurred.
 
It isn't fool proof, but we believe it is a good first step for our distance students.  We've also discussed photo rosters for our onsite classes, but haven't gotten that far at this time.

Teaching graduate cyber security courses online recently, I've looked into ways, from a cyber security point of view, to help ensure that the students I'm teaching online are, in fact, the same students who registered for the class  and are the same students consistently behind the key board for the Threaded Discussions, Team Assignments, and countless other weekly assessments that keep me in contact with them.

Userid/password, two factor authentication, biometrics, webcams, random real time challenge/responses (with a countdown clock) from the student information system and student profile (when students are logged on), etc. might help a bit, but short of 100% proctoring (kind of defeats the whole person of asynchronous distance learning), my conclusion is that there is no foolproof way to ensure those taking distance education courses are in fact those taking distance education courses.

InCommon has developed arrangements with our affiliate members to deploy 2nd factor. As part of that InCommon has agreements with Duo (phone based 2nd factor), SafeNet (cypto token), and Vasco (an Affiliate member) has second factor solutions as well).

Our goal for InCommon in these efforts is to change the price point so that 2nd factor can be as affordable as possible, works with our existing campus and federation infrastructure, and meets the needs of higher education.

I can say that UMBC has started testing the phone-based solution from Duo. Our plan is to identify some services and require 2nd factor for those higher risk services. We could also set this up to force second factor when coming from off-campus.
