A recent update to the Respondus LockDown Browser has changed how students can access their online Desire2Learn quizzes.
Students can now access their online D2L quiz in any supported browser and launch the LockDown Browser from that quiz. Within a quiz that requires the LockDown Browser, students will see these options:
Selecting Launch LockDown Browser will open the Respondus LockDown Browser and open it to the page displaying the Start Quiz option.
This process is contrasted with the previous method of accessing a LockDown Browser quiz: opening the LockDown Browser as a discrete application, logging into Desire2Learn, then navigating to a specific course and a specific quiz within that course.
Students will still have to install the LockDown Browser to take quizzes on their own computers. If the Launch LockDown Browser button is selected on a computer that does not have the LockDown Browser installed, a search will be performed, and the user will receive a message indicating that the LockDown Browser is missing. That message will also contain a download link. Washburn campus computers have the LockDown Browser installed.
