This comprehensive training webinar is intended for instructors who plan to use LockDown Browser and/or Respondus Monitor with online exams.
LockDown Browser is a custom browser that prevents digital cheating during an online exam. Respondus Monitor is a companion product for LockDown Browser that deters cheating when students take online exams in non- proctored environments. Students use their own computers with a standard webcam to record assessment sessions.
The session provides a detailed demonstration of both applications, including the automated flagging system within Respondus Monitor and best practices/tips. The webinar is 45 minutes, plus a Q&A period at the end.
Want to intervene with at-risk students before it’s too late to turn things around?
The Blackboard Retention Center is a user-friendly progress tracking tool that helps instructors easily identify, communicate with, and motivate at-risk students. Instructors can employ this tool to nudge those students who show signs of being at risk and intervene if necessary before it is too late for the students to turn things around. In this presentation, we will share our strategies on how to effectively use this tool in a time-efficient and innovative manner across different course settings, including large classes and fully online courses.
