Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDownBrowser & Monitor (Instructors)

LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in a learning management system (LMS) such as Canvas or Blackboard. Quizzes or tests created for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard browsers (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.). When students use LockDown Browser to access a quiz or test, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, access other applications, or close a quiz until it is submitted for grading.

If your exam requires use of Respondus Monitor, it is included with the Respondus Lockdown Browser download. The first time Monitor is required in a course for a student, the student will be prompted to pay $10 to use Repondus Monitor in the course. There is no charge to use Respondus Lockdown Browser only.
