Respondus Lockdown Browser

Respondus Lockdown Browser (Students)


         Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in eCampus. When students use LockDown Browser to take an
         eCampus test, they are unable to print, copy, go to other websites, access other applications, or close a test until it is submitted for grading. Tests created for use with            LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard browsers, either.

Additional Support

Respondus Monitor

Respondus Monitor is a companion product for LockDown Browser that enables institutions to protect the integrity of non-proctored, online exams. There are no longer fees, registrations costs, or departmental charges associated with using Respondus Monitor. Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system which is eCampus.

Students have access to Respondus Lockdown Browser Monitor 24/7 live chat support service. The students do not have to leave the Respondus Monitor application to use it. Most technical issues are encountered during the pre-exam “Startup Sequence” of Respondus Monitor – which is where the webcam/microphone check occurs. There is already a “It’s not working” feature in Respondus Monitor that helps students find the right solution. But if students are unable to solve the issue by the last step, a “Chat now” prompt appears. The live chat functionality can also be accessed through the “Help Center” in Respondus Monitor.
