Setting up the use of LockDown Browser for your quizzes is now done through the Respondus Dashboard. This is found on the main Quizzes page.
Respondus LockDown Browser® is a web browser that increases the security of online testing in the D2L Brightspace Learning Environment. When students are required to use Respondus LockDown Browser to access a quiz, they are unable to print, copy, go to another web site, or access other applications. Students can be locked into a quiz until it is submitted for grading.
Respondus Monitor® is a companion application for LockDown Browser® that uses webcam and video technology to further increase security of online exams. Students are video and audio recorded while setting up for and during their online exams thru their device's webcam and microphone. Faculty or authorized staff will be able to review video of any student that is suspected of using unathorized material during a Respondus Monitor® exam.
