Whether teaching face-to-face or online, we may want to give computer-based assessments with some assurance that students aren't using online resources to help them complete the assessment. Respondus LockDown Browser is a custom Internet browser that locks down the testing environment within a Moodle assessment. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser during a quiz/exam, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading.
If you are interested in LockDown Browser, or the technology around "proctoring exams" in general, please look into attending one of these two webinars! We (LTOE) would love to hear your feedback!
