Canvas (Instructors): Enabling the Respondus LockDown Browser LTI in Canvas

LockDown Browser is a locked browser for taking quizzes in Canvas. It prevents students from printing, copying, going to another URL, or accessing other applications during an assessment. If a Canvas quiz requires that LockDown Browser be used, students will not be able to take the quiz with a standard web browser. LockDown Browser should only be used for taking Canvas quizzes and exams.

  1. Log into Canvas

  6. Choose Enable
  7. At the bottom of the page, select Save
