Following a successful pilot over summer 2020, the University of Georgia is adopting Respondus Monitor as the online proctoring tool inside eLC and ALEKS testing platform beginning Fall 2020. Respondus Monitor is an AI-powered proctoring tool that functions as a plug-in for Respondus LockDown Browser. Like Respondus LockDown Browser, Respondus Monitor will be available free of charge to all UGA students and instructors.
What is Respondus Monitor
Respondus Monitor is an added feature to Respondus Lockdown Browser, which is a tool that restricts student access to other programs or views outside of the test they are taking. Both Respondus Monitor and Respondus Lockdown Browser work within eLC and with ALEKS. If you are not already familiar with Respondus Lockdown Browser, visit our eLC Help Page on Respondus Lockdown Browser for more information before considering this tool.
When enabled, Respondus Monitor requires students to use a webcam and microphone with LockDown Browser. After the exam is complete, you as an instructor can review details of the assessment, reports generated by Respondus, and recordings of students having taken the exam.
