Lockdown Browsers

The Office of e-Learning is collaborating with ITS to determine whether there would be interest among the faculty to pilot a Lockdown browser. 

Lockdown browsers lock down the testing environment within a  Learning Management System (e.g. Blackboard). Students are unable to copy, print, access other applications, or visit other websites during an online proctored exam. ***Please note, this is for in class exams, not for students taking exams in an un-proctored environment. 

If this is something you would be interested in using for your in class, proctored online exams, please fill out this form. 

YellowDig Social Media Training

Yellowdig is a social learning platform that integrates with the Learning Mangement System (LMS) -- so there’s no need for another tab in your browser. With Yellowdig, learners drive the discussion.  Instructors don’t have to spend time posting weekly prompts, facilitating and encouraging discussion, or finding and providing the content. Students bring in the content, relate it to course topics, and engage with one another organically.

This will be in webinar format so that you can participate from anywhere!
Click to register: January 19th - 12:30- 1:30
