The practice exam will familiarize students with the software and ensure that it has been installed properly.Another helpful tool is the student version of the Respondus LockDown Browser Quick Start Guide (available from the Resources area of CourseSites.)

A quote about the LMS

“The proliferation of learning management systems suggests that no one system is sufficiently feature rich, or adequately flexible and extensible enough to meet everyone’s needs or even most institutions’ requirements."

Ira Fuchs, vice president for research in information technology, Mellon Foundation. (2004, July) Learning Management Systems: Are we there yet?
Peter Mellow's insight:
I've always loved this quote and while it is over 10 years old now, it is still are relevant as it was back then. I've always said "An LMS is an LMS is an LMS" It's not the tool you use but how you use it. Good learning design can work in whatever environment it is given and still work. In saying that, it's nice to have a wide pallette of tools available to craft with and make our educational visions a reality.

Mark A. Dean's curator insight, June 8, 12:52 AM

While this article is about the workplace, I could see this happening in schools a lot.  The change from taking notes via pen and paper to smartphones may result in a lot of misunderstandings.  The digital natives and non-digital natives will have to find a way to understand each other, and that will take time.
