  • In-Course Questions

  • What is BioSig?

    BioSig is an authentication software to verify student identity by drawing a four-character code with your mouse. All course providers were mandated by the NMLS to implement this software in all online self-paced courses in 2016. The software came from a third-party vendor so OnCourse Learning must follow the rules of the third party vendor when it comes to how the authentication is presented in our courses. OnCourse Learning is not able to offer support with BioSig issues or questions, but there are plenty of articles and videos to help you go through BioSig in your course on the NMLS Student Authentication page.

    Please make sure your Last Name and NMLS# are correct in your OnCourse Learning profile. We also recommend you write down your BioSig password after you create one because you will need to draw a few times throughout the course as well as each time you log into your course.

  • How do I reset my BioSig password?

    If you fail to input your BioSig password three times, a box will pop up for you to enter an Authentication Code. This Authentication code will be sent to your email address. Please check to verify the authentication code is being sent to the correct email address. As long as your Last Name and NMLS# have not changed since the last time you logged into course, the email should go to the email you have on file with OnCourse Learning. For additional information or to watch helpful videos, please see How to Rest Your BioSig Password.

  • Why do course modules contain timers?

    Making sure a student remains engaged with the content for the duration of any pre-licensing or continuing education course is a requirement of the SAFE Act. As such, NMLS requires that timers be integrated to ensure that student engagement takes place.
