Lockdown Browser

What is Respondus Lockdown Browser?

LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within our learning system. When students use LockDown Browser to access an exam, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, or access other applications. Currently, it works on either a PC or a Mac computer or an iPad.  If you enable Lockdown Browser for a test, students are locked into it until it’s submitted for grading.

Watch the following video on using Lockdown Browser and importing a tutorial module into your course before deploying the tool. Please note that this video may not reflect small changes in interface that have been implemented.  

Student Instructions
Please direct your students to this page for instructions if you have not downloaded the module into your course.
