Respondus FAQ for Instructors and Students

New live proctoring function with Zoom or Teams

Respondus Instructor Live Proctoring was created to allow instructors to remotely monitor the synchronous delivery of a secured exam via video conferencing systems such as ZOOM or Microsoft Teams. Respondus Instructor Live Proctoring allows students to test using Respondus LockDown Browser but be monitored in real-time by their instructor via established video conferences tools. Respondus Instructor Live Proctoring is best used in classes smaller than 20 to 25 students.
