Online Learning Student Support: LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser prevents a user from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If an online exam or assessment requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, the exam won’t be accessible with a standard web browser.

Respondus LockDown Browser provides a custom interface for the Internet Explorer (Windows) or Safari (Macintosh) software that is already installed on a computer. It does not modify an existing copy of Internet Explorer or Safari, but rather, installs a separate program that displays a custom interface and set of features. Respondus LockDown Browser uses the same security features and service packs that are currently installed for Internet Explorer or Safari. Installing Respondus LockDown Browser won't modify your current version of Internet Explorer or Safari in any way.

(Note: Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking online exams and assessments. It shouldn’t be used to access other areas of a learning system.)

To continue with the installation, click the following link, then click on the logo of the operating system where Respondus LockDown Browser will be installed.
