Lockdown Browser and Monitor

LockDown Browser is a custom web browser that controls digital environment during online examinations. It restricts students from navigating away from the testing page, accessing other applications, or performing certain functions, such as copy-paste or print screen, during an examination.

Monitor, on the other hand, works in conjunction with LockDown Browser and utilizes a student's webcam and microphone to record their activity during the examination period. It uses AI algorithms and facial detection to identify potential anomalies or behaviors that might be out of the norm.
