Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment for tests taken in Blackboard. If you enable LockDown Browser for a Blackboard test, students will be unable to copy, print, access other applications, visit other websites, or close the test until it is submitted. LockDown Browser functions much like a standard browser, but some options are removed or work differently, and it is meant to be used in live proctoring situations. For online proctoring, instructors will need to require Respondus Monitor, which uses a web camera to record a student during the exam in addition to LockDown Browser.

Respondus tools are not accessible to all screen readers. For installation and best practices review the “More Info” tab below. Test these resources before requesting students to use them.
