Once the Respondus LockDown Browser has been enabled in your Blackboard course, navigate to "Course Tools" -> "Respondus LockDown Browser" -> "Getting Started" -> "Information for your Syllabus and Course Description". Select the appropriate option: "I'm using LockDown Browser only in my course" or "I'm using LockDown Browser and the webcam feature (Respondus Monitor)" in my course" then copy the information from the text box and paste it in the sylabus or share it with your students via Email (or both)
It is up to you whether you are going to use "LockDown Browser only" or "LockDown Browser and the webcam feature" in your course. It is recommended to do a survey among your students to see what kind of devices they are using and whether web-cameras are available to them (Respondus can only work with PC, Mac OS and iPads). After you do the survey you can decide which option you would like to go with.
