Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor
WVNCC has a campus-wide license for Respondus LockDown Browser® and Respondus Monitor.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within our Blackboard learning system. When students use LockDown Browser to access an exam, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, or access other applications. Once an assessment is started, students are locked into it until it's submitted for grading. For a complete list of features, visit the Respondus website at https://web.respondus.com/he/lockdownbrowser/
Monitor builds upon the power of LockDown Browser, using a student’s webcam and video analytics to prevent cheating during non-proctored exams. For a complete list of features, visit the Respondus website at https://web.respondus.com/he/monitor/
