Respondus Test Editor and LockDown Browser

Register now (select Brightspace/Desire2Learn as the learning management system) 

LockDown Browser & Respondus Monitor (webinar)

Learn the basics of Respondus LockDown Browser, a test security tool that is ideal for tests given in the SCC Testing Center or an on-campus computer lab.  LockDown prevents access to other websites, computer programs, copy/paste, and printing. It may also be used to lock down test results with answers.  LockDown does not use webcam monitoring, so Honorlock is a better choice for off-campus use.

Note:  The workshop also covers Respondus Monitor, which SCC no longer licenses.

Mon. 8/2 1:00-2:00pm, Wed. 8/4 2:00-3:00pm, Tues. 8/17 1:00-2:00pm, Thurs. 8/19 2:00-2:00-3:00pm, Tues. 8/24 2:00-3:00pm
