Training for LockDown Browser & Respondus Monitor:  Wednesday, November 16, 2:00 – 3:00 pm
This workshop is a special opportunity to learn about the LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor directly from the creators. This session will include an in-depth training on both LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor for Moodle. LockDown Browser is a custom browser that prevents digital cheating during an online exam. Respondus Monitor is a companion product for LockDown Browser that enables students to take online exams in non-proctored environments. Students use their own computers with a standard webcam to record assessment sessions.
This training will cover, from the instructor’s perspective:

  • How to use LockDown Browser to prevent digital cheating in proctored testing environments
  • How use Respondus Monitor in non-proctored environments, to protect exam integrity and confirm student identity
  • How Respondus Monitor provides greater flexibility for when and where tests are taken
  • Efficient review of the assessment data collected, including student videos
  • Best practices and tips for success with both applications
