BbLearn: Respondus LockDown Browser
Author: Robert Selzler
This session will cover everything an
instructor needs to know to get started with the Respondus
LockDown Browser (RLDB). RLDB is a browser that controls
computer use during online exams, preventing students from using
non-approved computer resources during the exam or leaving the
exam to use such resources. We will go over what RLDB is, why
and when you should use it and the best practices for its use –
and we’ll look at both the instructor and student views of the
browser in action. Completing this PDT is a division-required
prerequisite for using RLDB and auditing the online version is a
convenient way of fitting that prerequisite into your busy
schedule. Sign up today!
