Respondus LockDown Browser
Respondus LockDown Browser is a locked browser for taking tests in eCampus (Blackboard). It prevents test takers from printing, copying, going to another URL or accessing other applications during a test. Only students need to download the LockDown Browser.

Students should refer to the Respondus LockDownBrowser article for download instructions. K12 students who are in dual enrollment (High school access) at WVU and use Chromebooks managed by K12, can use Respondus Lockdown Browser (RLDB) in eCampus by following the step by step instructions provided in this PDF guide.

Chromebooks managed by K12 can also use the Respondus Monitor feature only if the LockDown Browser Chromebook "extension" is installed. To install the extension on the Chromebook, open the Chrome browser, and navigate to this URL, which will redirect to the Chrome web store, where you'll see the extension and be able to apply it. 

The High School Chromebook technician can push the extension out to the managed devices using the instructions in this PDF guide.

Instructors can learn more about using Respondus for test building in their course in the Respondus 4.0 article.

Respondus Monitor
Respondus Monitor is a part of the LockDown Browser that enables institutions to protect the integrity of non-proctored, online exams. There are no fees, registrations costs, or departmental charges associated with using Respondus Monitor. Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system which is eCampus.

Watch the Prepare an exam for use with Respondus Monitor video to learn more about using Respondus Monitor. Refer students to the Respondus LockDown Browser for Students article for more information about installing and using Respondus Monitor.
