Thursdays: 5:00 - 7:00 AM
Students should avoid taking quizzes during this time frame.
The Respondus LockDown Browser is a customized browser that increases the security of quiz delivery in Learn@UW-Stout. When students use the Respondus LockDown Browser to access a quiz, they are unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. Once a quiz is started, students are locked into it until it's submitted for grading.
To see what version is installed on your computer, open the Respondus LockDown Browser, and click on the "i" toolbar button (Windows) or the "About" button (OS X).
To install the new version: students must run the full setup (as if they were doing a new installation) and then choose to reinstall.
If you receive an "Invalid Username/Password" error when logging into Learn@UW-Stout, you should first try changing your password at: https://password.uwstout.edu/. UW-Stout has a one year password expiration policy and recently there have been a lot of students whose passwords have expired. While your password expiration won't prevent you from getting into your email, it will affect other campus applications, such as Learn@UW-Stout and Access Stout.
If you want to change your Learn@UW-Stout (D2L) password, you will first need to request to have your email password changed (as both systems use the same password). Once your email password has been changed, it will automatically be updated in Learn@UW-Stout (D2L).
