browser Respondus. This browser prevents you from printing, copying, going to another URL,
or accessing other applications during an assessment. You will need to use Respondus if you
have opened a quiz in MyLO which states: “To take this quiz you must use the Respondus
LockDown browser.” If your lecturer has implemented Respondus on your quiz, you cannot
complete the quiz with a standard web browser.
