What is Respondus Lockdown Browser

Respondus Lockdown Browser is a browser that locks down the testing environment for tests taken in Blackboard. Depending on the instructor settings you maybe required to use a camera while taking the test. When using the Lockdown Browser you will not be able to copy, print, access other applications, visit other websites, or close the test until it is submitted.
