Lockdown Browser and Monitor

Lockdown Browser is a test proctoring solution. Lockdown browser locks down a student's browser to provide a more secure testing environment. This testing environment prevents students from taking screenshots, printing, navigating to other windows or applications, and from having a second monitor.

Respondus Monitor is an additional feature that can only be used in conjunction with Lockdown Browser. Monitor can record the student from the student's webcam during the exam. It has additional features like facial detection, student photos, and environment checks.
