Respondus LockDown Browser & Monitor
Respondus LockDown Browser is a program students can download and install on their computers to use when taking an online quiz, test, or exam in Canvas where the instructor has required it. LockDown Browser prevents students from opening new browser windows or tabs, accessing other programs, or navigating away from the test. Respondus LockDown Browser also includes the Respondus Monitor option that records the student’s webcam during an assessment.
