This research describes the method of combining traditional authentication (password and username) with biometric technology, specifically fingerprint authentication. This authentication model is applied in distance education where courses are developed in learning management systems. It introduces the features of distance education as well as the biometric sensor operation. It describes the changes that are necessary to introduce in the learning management system in order to use the fingerprint as a data in the process of authentication. Finally, we performed tests of assessment the new authentication system in lab sessions at the college.
