Recommendations for Using EBB
Be Certain that Your Laptop is Functioning Well
To safely participate in laptop exams, it is critical that your computer be functioning well and virus free.
File Sharing Programs
If you use file sharing programs turn them off for the duration of the exam. File sharing programs such as BitTorrent may conflict with EBB during an exam, causing your computer to freeze or crash.
Undo and Redo Functions
Use these functions to restore any part of your work that you accidentally delete. The Undo and Redo functions will restore up to 20 prior actions or keystrokes.
Copying and Pasting into or FROM EBB is Prohibited
There is no copy feature in EBB, and you cannot copy text into or from EBB. If you type your exam in MS Word and try to copy the text into EBB, you will be prevented from doing so. In fact, you could end up deleting your entire exam if you try to copy into or from EBB. You must type your entire exam directly in EBB and use the formatting features provided in that software program.
NOTIFICATIONS - MAC
If you use OSX's Notifications feature, you may want to either turn it off or schedule a "Do Not Disturb" time frame so that you will not receive any notifications during your exam. You can do this by going to System Preferences | Notifications.
