Using Respondus LockDown Browser with Pearson MyLab

The quizzes/exams on the Pearson MyLab site require a different version of Respondus LockDown Browser known as LockDown Browser OEM, which can be downloaded from the link in the quiz on Pearson MyLab. You can have both applications installed on your computer, when you open a D2L quiz it will open the LSC version of LockDown Browser, and when you open a MyLab quiz it will open LockDown Browser OEM. Quizzes taken in LockDown Browser OEM may or may not use Respondus Monitor, depending on whether your Instructor chooses to use it, just like when using Respondus LockDown Browser in D2L.

Note: Pearson LockDown Browser cannot be used on an iPad or Chromebook. It only works on a computer with Windows or Mac OS.
