Respondus LockDown Browser (RLB)

Respondus LockDown Browser creates a “locked” testing environment for Blackboard.  

It is a downloadable application that is installed to your local computer.  Respondus LockDown Browser provides a custom internet browser interface. It does not modify the existing browser(s) at all, but installs a separate program that will display a custom browser when the Respondus LDB application is launched.  Additionally, Respondus LockDown Browser uses the same security features and service packs for internet browser(s) already installed on your local computer.

Respondus LockDown Browser is not intended to replace the browser used by faculty or students within Blackboard. It is only intended for use by students while taking assessments that have been prepared for use with Responds LockDown Browser. This browser has not been tested for use in other areas of the Blackboard Learning System.
