Respondus Lockdown Browser


Respondus Lockdown Browser is an external browser that can be used in coordination with Canvas quizzes to create a secure quizzeing experience.  Instructors can opt to require that students use the Respondus Lockdown Browser when taking a Canvas quiz.  The browser will lock down the student's device so that they cannot open other software programs or connect to other websites.  If desired, the instructor can provide a list of websites that the students are allowed to access.

Pilot Duration

Resondus Lockdown Browser is available for pilot for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.
