Respondus LockDown Browse/Monitor/Live Proctoring

LockDown Live Proctoring (NEW)  Institutions that license LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor have an additional remote proctoring option that works with Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and other video systems. The new “Instructor Live Proctoring” option uses LockDown Browser to prevent cheating on the computer itself, while the instructor watches students via video conferencing. This method is only recommended for small class sizes where instructors can effectively observe and track students during the exam.

LockDown Browser®  locks down the testing environment within our GeorgiaVIEW learning management system.

Respondus Monitor® builds upon the power of LockDown Browser, using a student’s webcam and industry-leading video analytics to prevent cheating by recording the student as they complete the online exam and flags any "off" movements and actions for you to review.


  • After you set Lockdown browser as required for a quiz, students will then go to the quiz to begin the process and download the browser for DSC.

  • Lockdown Browser/Monitor download is available after the student accesses the quiz/test.

    • It takes a bit to setup for the first time considering closing out all tabs, webcam check, etc.  Please give your students plenty of time, at least an extra half hour to work through the set up. Or set them up with a practice test first of semester so they will be ready for real exams. 

  • Chromebooks are now accepted devices with the extension requiring install first. This PDF Lockdown Browser and Monitor Experience on Chromebook walks the user through this: 

  • iPad has an app, search for Respondus Lockdown browser, it allows Monitor as well.
