How do I enable students with Chromebooks to use the beta release of Respondus Lockdown Browser?
A “beta” release of a new Chromebook extension for LockDown Browser is currently available for exams delivered in Blackboard Learn (Original view). This version of the LockDown Browser Chromebook extension also supports Respondus Monitor. During the beta period, instructors will need to allow the use of LockDown Browser for Chromebook on a per exam basis.
Enable the Beta release of Lockdown Browser
2. Click on "Continue to LockDown Browser."
3. Locate your desired test and click on the contextualization menu (the caret).
4. Click on Settings.
6. Expand “Advanced Settings” and select the option to “Allow students to use LockDown Browser for Chromebook”.
7. Click Save+Close
Note: Students using a Chromebook will need to use the regular LockDown Browser installation link for UIC (they will NOT be able to search for the app directly from the Chrome web store). The LockDown Browser installation link will direct the student to the Chrome web store, at which point they should select “Add to Chrome” to install the LockDown Browser Extension. If the instructor allows an exam to use the Chromebook version of LockDown Browser, it will automatically launch LockDown Browser at the appropriate time.
