Using LockDown Browser is easier than ever!

What’s up, Warhawks? We’re already halfway done with the first month of the Fall 2017 semester!

Returning students have probably used LockDown Browser at least once during their college career, but for those of you who haven’t: LockDown Browser is a web browser, like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, but it only allows you to access Desire2Learn (D2L).

lockdownThe purpose of LockDown Browser is to block the ability to open new tabs or windows in order to discourage cheating while taking a quiz on D2L. Instructors can mark their quizzes in D2L to require LockDown Browser in order to open them.

Prior to this semester, students had launch LockDown Browser from their computer’s desktop, log into D2L, and then manually navigate to their course in order to open the quiz. This process has been simplified!

Now, all you have to do in order to take your quiz in LockDown Browser is:

  1. Open the quiz in your preferred web browser
  2. Click the blue “Launch LockDown Browser” button. (If the browser is not installed, you will be prompted to install it)
  3. Take the quiz

button

The button launches LockDown Browser, logs you in, and automatically navigates to the quiz for you!
