What is Respondus LockDown Browser?

The Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment for Blackboard quizzes and exams. If you enable the LockDown Browser, students must install the browser on their computer and then use it to log in to Blackboard and take the test. While using it, they are unable to copy, print, access other applications, visit other websites, or close the test until it is submitted.

The Student Version of LockDown Browser uses a standard Windows or Mac installer. This download link is unique for USIU-Africa. Please note students are required to install the application on their machines for them to take a Respondus Lockdown Browser and/or Monitor enabled exams.
