Respondus Lockdown Browser is now available for Chromebooks:
During the beta period, instructors will need to enable the use of the Chromebook version on a per exam basis.
Installing the LockDown Browser to a Chromebook is easy.
Note: During the beta, this extension will only work with assessments an instructor has enabled for use with LockDown Browser for Chromebook
*Remember to update & restart your computer the morning before the test, allowing time to work through any issues. Make sure you can load Lockdown Browser before test time, and that you are able to access the Blackboard login screen from within it.
