Honorlock is an online proctoring solution offered by the Technical College of the Lowcountry. Honorlock records the exam session allowing students to test at their convenience. Honorlock is completely on-demand so students can log in to take their exam any time of the day. After the exam is completed, certified in-house proctoring staff review all footage to ensure test integrity. Any incidents will be reported back to the Technical College of the Lowcountry faculty. Honorlock does not require students to download any software or create any logins.
Honorlock features include:

How to use Honorlock:
If you would like more information about using Honorlock in your online course, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, the TCL Library at 843-525-8317, or refer to the below user guides for Blackboard.
Remember, when Honorlock is enabled they create a new password in the exam that should never be edited. If that password is changed students will be prompted for a password to get into the exam even after they authenticate with Honorlock. Do not change the Honorlock assigned password.
