Respondus Lockdown Browser End-of-life July 2019
Posted by Dave Laurie on 16 November 2018 01:14 PM

Attention Respondus Lockdown Browser users,

Starting in July 2019, Respondus Lockdown Browser (RLDB) will no longer be supported as a mechanism for quiz security at the University of Alberta. The software will no longer be available for any campus computer labs and will no longer be available to download onto user devices.

Instead, IST will now be supporting ExamLock, a secure exam delivery tool that is currently being used by a number of early adopters and is already installed in some IST managed labs. ExamLock is locally-developed and designed to deliver eClass quizzes in a full-screen secure mode while recording all on-screen activity during quiz attempts. The tool can also be installed on student devices to allow them to complete secure quizzes on personal machines.

For more information about transitioning from RLDB to ExamLock or for documentation about using the service, please contact us at
