LockDown Browser (Respondus) is a custom browser only intended for taking quizzes (including tests or exams) in MyCanvas for courses that have been specifically set up to require use of this browser.
If you are required to use LockDown Browser, your quiz title will include "Requires Lockdown Browser". You will be alerted to install the software on your personal computer if you haven't done so already. Campus computers and laptops borrowed from the college already have LockDown Browser installed.
If your test requires the use of a webcam (sometimes referred to as Respondus Monitor), you’ll be guided through a brief set of screens prior to the start of the quiz. A quiz that requires a webcam will include webcam in the title. With Respondus Montior, the camera will record you during an online test or exam.
Your computer must have a functioning webcam and microphone. Try to use the same computer every time you take a test so you know that your software and equipment are working.
