Respondus Monitor Quick Start Guide


Respondus Monitor builds upon the power of LockDown Browser, using a student’s webcam and video analytics to prevent cheating during non-proctored exams. It can be used to offer online proctoring without having to go to a test proctoring location or having to watch the exams live. The exams can be watched at a later date, if the instructor chooses to do so.
