LockDown Browser™ locks down the testing environment within Blackboard

Respondus LockDown Browser :

The LockDown Browser is an online tool which works within Blackboard to help prevent online test-takers from accessing applications and websites on their computers as well as printing and copying the test while the test is running.

To view a demonstration video on how it works, go to: http://www.respondus.com/products/lockdown-browser/demos.shtml

Why use the LockDown Browser?

In addition to its main function to limit student options for circumventing online tests, the LockDown Browser has proven to be an excellent way to mitigate Blackboard test crashes. When using the LockDown Browser, students no longer have access to normal browser features which can potentially crash a test (e.g. resizing a window, refreshing the page, switching to another application). Students are locked into the test until they submit it for grading.

How do you use it?

To implement the browser, in Blackboard, under your course Control Panel, select Course Tools, and then Respondus LockDown Browser. From there you'll see a list of tests you've already created. Click the button to require that any particular test require the LockDown Browser.
