Blackboard (Students) - About LockDown Browser
This article describes LockDown Browser.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that provides a secure testing environment within Blackboard. LockDown Browser prevents students from opening other browsers or web pages, disables copy/paste/print functions, and limits access to other computer applications (more information is available from the Resources section of Respondus' LockDown Browser site). When LockDown Browser is enabled on a course assessment, students cannot open the assessment with any other browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, Safari). See these steps for how to download LockDown Browser from Blackboard.
