Want a quick and effective way to secure your online exams, increase student accountability, and reduce potential cheating? Need a way to monitor your students’ test-taking activity in online courses? Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor are now available to faculty and students at no additional cost based on our recently purchased site license.

Respondus LockDown Browser is a tool in Blackboard and Canvas that locks down the testing environment to prevent students from browsing to other sites during an exam. In addition, when students use the LDB they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access any other applications on their personal computer. Visit the OIT Respondus LDB information page for more information.

Respondus Monitor is a tool that will allow for proctored, or supervised, online exams. Monitor can help ensure exam integrity for students taking tests online outside of a testing center. Monitor is an option that can be used in conjunction with Respondus LDB. Take a quick look at the capabilities of Respondus Monitor by watching this short video. For more information related to Respondus Monitor, see the OIT Respondus Monitor information page.

If you need additional assistance, consultation, or training with either Respondus product, contact the OIT HelpDesk online or call 865-974-9900.
