Information on BYOD for teachers is available as part of the EXAM Moodle Miniguide
Warning to MacOS users
If your laptop is shutdown while working in SEB, it may lock the account.
Create an account especially for SEB and use SEB in that account only.

In brief
  1. Install the latest version of Safe Exam Browser (SEB).
  2. Download the HUJI configuration file: HUJI-Windows.seb or HUJI-MacOS.seb.
  3. Double click on the downloaded file to launch SEB.
  4. Check that SEB opens on the EXAM Moodle page and that there is a Quit SEB link at bottom right.
  5. If your EXAM is on the exams-test network, connect to it before launching SEB.

s In more detail:

Install Safe Exam Browser (SEB)
  1. On your laptop, install Safe Exam Browser from the SEBIcon_40_2x.png SEB Download page, or as follows: Opening Safe Exam Browser from Applications will start SEB with the default configuration.
    However, you will need to use SEB with the HUJI configuration. So...
  2. Install the HUJIhujiSEB configuration file as follows:

Launch Safe Exam Browser
To open SEB with the HUJI configuration, double click on the downloaded HUJI SEB configuration file (HUJI-Windows.seb or HUJI-MacOS.seb).
In MacOS a popup will appear:
"Safe Exam Browser" is an app downloadedfrom the Internet.
Are you sure you want to
open it?
Click on Open.
After SEB opens, a popup will appear:
SEB Re-Configured
New settings have been saved,
they will be used when you start SEB next time again.
Do you want to start
working with SEB or quit for now?
Whether you choose to quit or continue, the HUJI configuration will be saved.
So from now on, SEB in Applications will also use the HUJI configuration.
Note: This popup will appear only when you open SEB from the file rather than from Applications.

SEB should open on the EXAM Moodle login page.
There should be a Quit SEB link at bottom right
If not, you are not using the HUJIhujiSEB configuration file.
If you are using an old version of the configuration file, or an old version of SEB, there will be an error message at bottom right.
If so, install the latest configuration file, or latest version of SEB, and try again.

Connect to the exams-test network
  • Ensure that your laptop is connected to the correct wireless network for the exam that you will be taking.
    You will be probably be required to use the exams-test network.
    Authentication to the exams-test network is with username moodle_exams and password exams_moodle.
    Note: Only EXAM Moodle is accessible from the exams-test network.

Check your SEB
  1. First, set up your demo exam as follows:
    1. In any browser, on any computer, go to:
    2. Authenticate

  2. Now, attempt the demo exam as follows:
    On your laptop:
    1. Connect to the exams-test network (if you chose the first of the above two links).
    2. Launch Safe Exam Browser. The EXAM Moodle login page should open.
      There should be a Quit SEB link at bottom right.
      If not, you are not using the HUJI SEB configuration.
      If you are using an old version of SEB, or an old version of the HUJI SEB configuration file, there will be an error message at bottom right.
    3. Authenticate
    4. If you correctly installed SEB and the SEB file (and are connected to the exams-test network if you chose the first link), you will be redirected to the demo exam.
      Otherwise, EXAM Moodle will exit with an error message.
    5. Clicking on Finish exam and then on Submit exam will redirect you back to the login page.
    6. Click on link Quit SEB* at bottom right of the login page to close SEB.
    7. Connect back to your previous network.
You can do the demo exam as often as you wish, but each time you must first set it up.
*Note: The Quit SEB link appears only in SEB and only if opened with the HUJI configuration.

Note for Teachers: If your demo exam prevents you accessing EXAM Moodle in the usual way, you can delete it at https://exam2.cs.huji.ac.il/byodemo/delete

On Windows, if an older version of SEB is already installed, you will have to uninstall it before installing the later version.
If you have trouble uninstalling, then try deleting the following directories:
  • C:\Program Files(x86)\SafeExamBrowser\SebWindowsBrowser
  • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\SafeExamBrowser
  • C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\eqsoft\seb
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\ETH Zuerich\SEB Windows 1.8
