Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor Instructional Workshops

Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor Instructional Workshops

Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor now available at Georgia College! 

Respondus LockDown Browser® is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within GeorgiaVIEW in order to prevent cheating during exams. LockDown Browser prevents access to other applications, including messaging and screen-sharing. Right-click options, keyboard shortcuts, and copy/pasting functionalities are disabled during the exam attempt. Students cannot exit the quiz until their attempt has been submitted. 

Respondus Monitor, used in conjunction with LockDown Browser, allows students to take online assessments from a remote location, while ensuring the integrity of the exam process. Students use a webcam to record themselves during an online exam. Afterward, flagged events and proctoring results are available to the instructor for further review. Alternatively, instructors may choose the live proctoring option available through Monitor to proctor a quiz during a live session of a third-party conferencing tool like Webex or Zoom. 

Respondus LockDown Browser and Monitor are easy to set up and use for quizzes in GeorgiaVIEW. Students must download the Respondus software in order to attempt a quiz that requires LockDown Browser. CTL will be hosting instructional workshops for faculty on Tuesday, November 30 at 10 a.m., on Wednesday, December 1 at 2 p.m., and again in January (the exact date and time will be shared soon!). We are happy to meet with you individually – please send us an email to schedule a meeting!
