Enable a Test for Lockdown Browser
Lockdown Browser is a special browser used to provide a secure online testing environment.  When enabled, students will be required to go through the browser for testing.  It disables navigation, locks your environment so that users cannot open other applications, and disables copying, printing, or using print screen.
*Note, until we are able to upgrade our version on campus (Summer ’11), Moodle users will have to change their Moodle messaging settings so that their messages do not pop up upon logging into Moodle.
