Online Proctoring Tools


Respondus Monitor: 

Respondus Monitor enhances LockDown Browser by using a student’s webcam to record the assessment session. This enables online exams to be taken in non-proctored environments and deters students from accessing other resources during an exam (such as a phone, a second computer, etc.). It also ensures the right student is taking the exam, and that the student isn’t getting help from others.  

How to Use It: 



For the spring of 2018, Radford University is conducting a Pilot using Respondus Monitor for online proctoring. The initial Pilot has been reserved for instructors teaching online courses. If you are interested in making use of Respondus Monitor for online proctoring for the spring 2018 semester, please contact Mr. Ed Oakes at or Dr. George Santopietro at
