Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom web browser for taking quizzes in eLearning. When using Respondus LockDown Browser, you cannot print, copy, go to other web sites, or access other applications. Once you start a quiz in Respondus, you must finish it in the same session. If your instructor requires that you use Respondus, you will not be able to take the quiz with a standard web browser.
Respondus LockDown Browser should only be used for taking quizzes. Do not use it with other features in eLearning or on other web sites.
You must be the administrator of your computer in order to download Respondus LockDown Browser. Respondus LockDown Browser is also available in the Building 79 Computer Lab, CyberLounge, and other UWF computer labs.
I rebooted my computer while Respondus LockDown Browser was running. Now the Windows Task Manager is grayed out and can’t be used. What do I do?
If a computer is powered down while Respondus LockDown Browser is running, the Windows Task Manager will continue to be blocked when the computer is restarted. To remove the blocking, restart Respondus LockDown Browser and exit the program properly (click the "X" in the top right corner).
When I start LDB a warning message states “You must close the following programs before starting the browser: [program name]”.
Over 300 applications, such as screen capture and chat programs, are "blacklisted." This means that you cannot start Respondus LockDown Browser until the blocked application is exited. When this warning message appears, Respondus LockDown Browser will offer to close the blacklisted program for you, which is the easiest way to continue.
