What is Respondus LockDown Browser?
Respondus LockDown Browser is a secure browser for taking quizzes and exams in Canvas. It prevents you from printing, copying, or accessing other applications and websites during a quiz. If a quiz requires LockDown, you will not be able to take the quiz with a standard web browser. LockDown should only be used for taking Canvas quizzes; it should not be used in other areas of Canvas.
If your instructor requires LockDown, you will be provided with that information and a link in Canvas. The link is specific to Southeast Community College.
