LockDown Browser Training

Due to the complex nature of the program, training for instructors using LockDown Browser is strongly recommended. Training videos and resources are provided in the application itself, but Repondus is also offering daily webinars at https://web.respondus.com/webinars/.

For first-time users interested in a simpler proctoring system, consider using ProctorHub.

If you have questions about LockDown Browser, contact Webcourses@UCF Support.
