What is a lock-down browser?

A lock-down browser locks the learner's device into a full-screen testing environment until they submit their assignment. During the test session, learners are prevented from accessing instant message, email, the Internet, and other applications or files, unless they are explicitly whitelisted.

Whitelisting of web pages

By default lock-down browsers in Inspera Assessment offers a Closed Book Exam with no access to web pages. However, Inspera Assessment can allow access to third-party web pages in lock-down mode. These resources can be whitelisted in Inspera Assessment when setting up the exam.
