Apartments Internet Access


The IAUPR School of Optometry apartments have Internet service provided by the School.

From November 22, 2013 the internet access has to be configured/requested at the CIT office.

To have access, you need to have configured a PPPoE connection, and it requires an username/password assigned by CIT. This access ONLY allows for a single device connection, so it is extremely important that if you connect to the Internet thru a router, that you bring the router to CIT for configuration or instructions on how to configure. 

Respondus updates

The Respondus© Lockdown Browser is just one of many tools students need to have installed on their computers to be able to complete online examinations on the BlackBoard Learning System. Since this software is updated often, the CIT will publish the latest update for Windows and Mac computers in the Public shared folder. 

You will find it by going to Public folder -> Laptop Tools -> Respondus.  

 If for any reason the update is not available in Public, the official download link for our School is:

You SHOULD NOT download the Respondus Lockdown Browser from any other link!
This download is customized specifically for IAUPR School of Optometry. Any other link will not work with IAUPR Blackboard system! 

Be advised that Respondus servers sometimes cut the download short (disconnection by idle time), in those occasions the download is incomplete

Windows Computers

You can install the new version over the old one, when the Respondus setup initiates, just select Reinstall / Update from the options shown before installing. 

Special note for Mac computers

To reinstall on Mac computers it is advised that you uninstall the existing Respondus (Go to Applications folder and drag Respondus Lockdown Browser to Trash bin), EMPTY the Trash bin and THEN install the new version.

This is the most reliable way to be sure you have the latest version installed.
