Respondus LockDown Browser

Instructors: Respondus Monitor is an additional product that works with Respondus LockDown Browser to use the student's webcam to utilize video to further prevent cheating during online quizzes.  It is currently licensed only for use by specific courses in the College of Business and Economics.  If you are interested in using Respondus Monitor in your course, please contact the Learning Technology Center.
