Respondus, Inc. announces the release of Respondus LockDown Browser, a custom browser that creates a secure testing environment within the WebCT and Blackboard e-learning platforms.
When students use Respondus LockDown Browser (http://www.respondus.com) they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading. The Respondus LockDown Browser software is designed for use with WebCT Vista, WebCT CE 4, and the Blackboard Learning System 6.0 and higher. Educational institutions can obtain a free pilot license through August 1, 2006.
Respondus, Inc. develops testing, survey, and game applications for the leading e-learning platforms, including the Blackboard Learning System(TM), WebCT, ANGEL LMS, and eCollege, among others. Respondus also partners with publishers, including Thomson Higher Education and Pearson Education, to distribute question banks for over 900 of the leading textbooks in higher education. Thousands of faculty at over 2,000 colleges and universities in over 50 countries use Respondus software to enhance their e-learning offerings.
