Lockdown Browser Upgrades (for Lab Computers)

Please contact IMG if you maintain a lab and have questions on which version to install.

From Respondus:

On May 28, 2014 we will take over management of software updates for the “Student Edition” of LockDown Browser. This is a positive change since it ensures students are running a current version of LockDown Browser on their own computers, thus reducing support issues.

However, this change necessitates that computer labs and testing centers have the “Lab Edition” of LockDown Browser installed, NOT the “Student Edition.”  If a computer lab has the Student Edition of LockDown Browser installed, the Windows version will cease working on May 28, 2014; the Mac version will cease working on June 16, 2014.

The Lab Edition of LockDown Browser doesn’t require students to have administrator rights. It also ignores software updates required by the Student Edition of LockDown Browser. This is why it’s essential for computer labs and testing centers to have the Lab Edition of LockDown Browser installed.
