Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor

Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within MyLearningSpace. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading.

Respondus Monitor enhances the security of online testing by recording students and their environment via webcam while they complete assessments in MyLearningSpace.

Laurier has a institutional license for LockDown Browser. It can be enabled in any quiz within MyLearningSpace through the Lockdown Browser link on the quizzes page.

The browser can be downloaded from here:
