Using Respondus Lockdown Browser

What is Respondus LockDown Broswer?
This application is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard and WebCT. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading. To learn more about this product, visit
