Tip of the Week

 EdTech Tip of the Week: Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser should be used in a controlled, secure testing environment (e.g., a reserved computer lab where all the students take the exam at the same time.) We suggest to not use the LockDown browser for off-campus exams, as it limits the browser’s effectiveness. Because students may still have access to other devices (cell phones, tablets, laptops, etc.), the testing environment is not as secure. Also because students use different computers it is hard to predict how well the lockdown browser will run with those machines.
