LockDown Browser is a locked browser for use with quizzes in Brightspace. It prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing otherapplications during an assessment. If a Brightspace quizrequires that LockDown Browser be used, you will notbe able to take the quiz with a standard web browser.
LockDown Browser should only be used for taking Brightspace quizzes. It should not be used in other areas of Brightspace.
Students enrolled in HSC programs, please go to Brightspace by D2L https://learn.ouhsc.edu/ to download and install Respondus LDB to use in your quizzes.
The download link is available under the Assessments menu in most of your courses. Alternatively, once you log into Brightspace, click on the red navigation bar menu Brightspace Help > LockDown Browser Installer.
How to take a quiz with LockDown Browser in Brightspace by D2L:
You must first go to your Brightspace course and start your quiz taking process there. After clicking on a quiz to enter, a “Launch LockDown Browser” button will appear at the bottom of the page. This is where you will then start LockDown Browser.
After the initial download and installation of the software, LockDown Browser is only ever launched from within a Brightspace by D2L quiz. If you start the LockDown Browser app BEFORE you start your quiz process, you will end up back on this page.
