Respondus Monitor




Monitor is a built-in companion for LockDown Browser that enables assessment sessions to be recorded with a webcam. Respondus Monitor is ideal for non-proctored environments where online tests pose unique challenges. Students use their own computer and a webcam to record assessment sessions, all without leaving the institution's learning management system. When an assessment requires Respondus Monitor, students start the LockDown Browser application, log into the LMS and complete a brief startup sequence prior to the exam. The student and the surrounding environment are recorded during the entire exam. Instructors can quickly review details of the assessment, examine still images captured at random times during the assessment, and even watch the entire recorded video if necessary.
