Respondus Lockdown Browser and Monitor


Respondus Lockdown Browser is a custom browser tool that prevents students from printing, copying, and accessing other applications or websites during proctored online exams. It locks down the testing environment within the learning management system so that during tests students are unable to go to other URLs, access other applications, capture screen content, or print.

The Respondus Monitor tool in Blackboard is the companion tool to Respondus Lockdown Browser. It adds webcam and video technology to deter academic dishonesty in non-proctored online exam settings. Suspicious behaviors are automatically flagged during an exam, such as a student leaving the computer, a different person entering the video frame, and more.
