Your course may require the use of Respondus LockDown Browser for online exams. Respondus LockDown Browser is a locked browser for taking tests in Blackboard Learn. 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.
Taking a Test
The pathway to use RLDB will depend on whether you are taking the test in an Original course or an Ultra course. Please see → For Students: Taking a Test with Respondus Lockdown Browser.
GETTING HELP: Live chat help is available within LockDown Browser when using Respondus Monitor. Chat agents can assist students with pre-exam issues related to the webcam and microphone. Click the the "Need More help?" button.
You can also open a ticket directly with Respondus support.
