Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is a secure browser that locks down the testing environment within the NDUS Blackboard Learn.


Respondus LockDown Browser is a secure browser for taking tests in Blackboard. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during a test. If a Blackboard test requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, you will not be able to take the test with a standard web browser. Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking Blackboard tests. It should not be used in other areas of Blackboard.

Note: The Respondus LockDown Browser provided through NDSU cannot be used to take a test which requires the ALEKS LockDown Browser - contact the course instructor for more information.
