Respondus LockDown Browser is a locked browser used specifically for taking online
quizzes in Cougar Courses. It prevents students from printing, copying, going to another
URL, or accessing other applications (like Word) during a quiz. If a quiz requires
that LockDown Browser be used, students will not be able to take the quiz with a standard
web browser. There is also the additional option of Respondus Monitor, which uses
a student's webcam to record them while they take the quiz. These videos are then
viewable by the instructor through the Respondus LockDown Browser Dashboard. Automated
video analysis automatically flags any suspicious behavior in these videos and prioritizes
them for review.
For a quick overview, see the Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor Instructor Quick Start Guide.
