Respondus LockDown Browser: Enabling Respondus for Your Course

Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment for a Canvas Quiz item. Students are unable to copy, print, access other applications, or visit other websites during an online exam.

The use of LockDown Browser is not a guarantee to prevent academic dishonesty—students who have access to other internet-enabled devices could still potentially access the internet.

Please note that Yale does not use the Respondus Monitor service.

  1. In your course, navigate to the "Settings" section of your Course Navigation.
  2. Click "Navigation" tab across the top.
  3. Scroll down to the disabled tools list until you see the "LockDown Browser" option.
    1. Click on the three dot icon for the "LockDown Browser" option.
  4. In the menu that opens, click the "Enable" option, which will move the LockDown Browser up to the enabled tools list.
  1. Once enabled, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Save" button to finish enabling Respondus LockDown Browser for your course.
