What does the respondus lockdown browser option do?
The Respondus Lockdown browser is actually a 3rd-party plugin. It is not officially part of Canvas but if your institution purchased Respondus, it plugs into Canvas Quizzes. It provides a secure browser for testing to help ensure test security. It blocks certain abilities for student while taking a quiz/test. It does require the student to download the secure browser or be using a computer that has it installed.
Here is their website for more info:
Hope this helps!
