Secure Online Testing

Respondus Lockdown Browser Pilot Program

Over the years, faculty have expressed interest in a more secure environment to deliver online exams. In response, the CTL is testing Respondus Lockdown Browser (RLB) during AY 2017-18. RLB is a stand-alone browser replacement that restricts student access to UVM’s Blackboard server. During an assessment, all other applications and websites are closed and inaccessible to students. If you are interested in learning more about RLB, contact us at

Please help us spread the word about the availability of this application.
