You may be required to take Proctored Online Tests. Respondus LockDown Browser (LDB) is the software provided to students. LDB is a secure browser for taking tests in Blackboard. It prevents printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during a test. If your instructor requires Respondus LockDown Browser to be used, you will not be able to take the test with a standard web browser. Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking Blackboard tests. It should not be used in other areas of Blackboard.
Respondus Monitor is an addition to the LDB. If used, you will be required to use a webcam, which will record you during an online exam. Please refer to the Student Quick Start Guide below for more information on how to download and setup Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor.
