Request a Blackboard Shell   
Each semester, instructors need to request a separate shell for each course. Click the button below to fill out a form to get your own Instructor Blackboard course shell. (NOT FOR STUDENTS). This link will take you to the intranet side of Distance Learning, so you'll find the link under "Blackboard Information." Instructors should not use Internet Explorer when editing their course. Some functions on Blackboard don't work with the newest versions of IE.

 Respondus LockDown Browser (Blackboard Building Block)
 
Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. When students use Respondus LockDown Browser they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading. Available for both Windows and Mac. Click here for more information.
