DigiExam offers the possibility to use the web application Geogebra as an external tool. Students can use the functionality offered in the web application but in a locked environment.
The external tool needs to be added by an Account Manager before it's available for teachers to enable it in an exam. It's important that you test the external tool internally and verify that the feature offers the correct functionality.

The teacher chooses the external tool to be allowed in the exam by clicking On.
The URL for the external tools's already set by the Account Manager in the external tool settings, no additional URL is required.
