Using Respondus Lockdown Browser in Canvas

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment in order to prevent cheating on tests in the classroom. 

When students use LockDown Browser to access a test, they are unable to print, copy, visit other websites, access other applications, or close the test until it is submitted for grading. Tests created for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with standard web browsers.

Respondus LockDown Browser is a great solution for on-ground/in-person courses, but is not recommend for online courses where students are in remote locations, due to the fact that students could still potentially cheat by using a secondary device. (tablet, smartphone, second computer, etc.)
