Safe Exam Browser - Lab Computer Lock Down for Online Exams


Safe Exam Browser
is a web browser (like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc.) that features a lock-down system when in use.  It directly integrates with Moodle and it can be found in most of the computer labs in the North Vancouver and Sechelt campuses (see full list below).

Anyone who uses this browser will not be able to navigate away from it at any time after it is opened. For example, once the browser is opened, you will be not be able to open any new tabs or windows or access the desktop or network drives.  Therefore if your exam requires the student to have this functionality do not use this browser.
