The Respondus Lockdown Browser (LDB) is a locked web browser for taking online assessments and prevents students from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. Beginning this semester, students may be required to use two different versions of Respondus LDB.
Students use the UTK Canvas version called Respondus when LDB is required for course work for most courses. For courses using WebAssign, typically Math courses, a unique version of LDB is required called Respondus OEM. Both versions of LDB can be installed simultaneously if needed.
UT is also finalizing an agreement for our next generation of online proctoring. We expect to make Proctorio available soon for early adopters this semester.
For complete information on how to install and use both versions of Respondus Lockdown Browser, view the OIT Knowledge Base article.
