Try it out before you buy in!

The Try Before You Buy In training series lets instructors experience instructional technologies from the student perspective before implementing them in the classroom. Then, if you decide you’re ready to buy in, stay for personalized setup help to make sure you’re prepared for your students. 


What is Respondus LockDown Browser?

Respondus LockDown Browser is a Canvas integration that locks down the online testing environment to prevent cheating. Students are unable to visit other websites, access other applications, copy, print, or take a screen capture while taking an exam through LockDown Browser. 


How Does the Training Work?

Part 1: Try it Out 

In this session, you’ll see what it’s like to take a quiz or exam in Canvas using LockDown Browser. You’ll go through downloading and installing the software, using the browser, and navigating an online exam just as students do. We’ll talk about common issues and recommended settings for online testing. 

Part 2: Set it Up (optional) 

If you decide to use it in your course, the last hour of the session will be dedicated to getting your quiz or exam set up in Canvas with LockDown Browser. We’ll make sure you have enabled all the right settings to facilitate a secure Canvas quiz, either in class or online. If you don’t currently have any quizzes or exams set up in your Canvas course, come prepared with a quiz and answer key you would like to move into Canvas.  


This session is limited to the first 10 participants to allow for meaningful conversations and personalized attention.
