Instructor Overview



Respondus LDB for Canvas is not yet available to students. During Spring 2022 when you launch Respondus LDB it will open to Learn's login page. On 5/23/2022 that page will be updated to include the Canvas login screen. That means students will not be able to access the Canvas version of Respondus LDB until the conclusion of Spring 2022.


Respondus LockDown Browser & Respondus Monitor are virtual exam integrity tools available for tests given in UNM Canvas (provided at no additional charge for students or faculty). LockDown Browser is a custom browser that students install on their own computers that locks down the testing environment within UNM Canvas. Monitor is a video monitoring tool which uses the student’s webcam and microphone to record their actions and environment during an exam, test or quiz.


How Respondus LockDown Browser Works:

  • Assessments are displayed full-screen and cannot be minimized
  • Browser menu and toolbar options are removed, except for Back, Forward, Refresh and Stop
  • Prevents access to other applications including messaging, screen-sharing, virtual machines, and remote desktops
  • Printing and screen capture functions are disabled
  • Copying and pasting anything to or from an assessment is prevented
  • Right-click menu options, function keys, keyboard shortcuts and task switching are disabled
  • An assessment cannot be exited until the student submits it for grading
  • Assessments that are set up for use with LockDown Browser cannot be accessed with other browsers

How Respondus Monitor Works:

  • Students use a webcam to record themselves during an online exam. Afterward, flagged events and proctoring results are available to the instructor for further review.
