Respondus Monitor

Respondus Logo

Respondus Monitor™ is a companion product for LockDown Browser that enables institutions to protect the integrity of non-proctored, online exams.

Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system.

How It Works

  • Students start LockDown Browser, log into Blackboard and complete a brief startup sequence prior to the exam
  • The student and the surrounding environment are recorded during the entire exam
  • Instructors can quickly review details of the assessment, and even watch the recorded video

Why It Works

  • Cheating is deterred with a low-hassle, easy-to-use system
  • Students appreciate a level playing field and the ability to take exams anytime
  • Administrators ensure student identity and exam integrity in distance learning environments
