What is Respondus LockDown Browser?

This is a secure internet browser for taking quizzes in D2L. It prevents printing, copying, and accessing other webpages and applications during a quiz.

If a D2L quiz requires that Respondus LockDown Browser be used, you will not be able to take the quiz with a standard web browser, such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

The following video and instructions will explain how you can download, install, and use Respondus LockDown Browser.
