Information on BYOD for teachers is available as part of the EXAM Moodle Miniguide
Advice to Windows users
If when attempting to open SEB it asks you whether to Modify or uninstall?, you will have to remove the SEB configuration file association and reboot. See here.
See below for more information

Warning for MacOS users
If you close your laptop while working in SEB, your laptop may lock on a red screen.
To unlock, forcibly shutdown your laptop.
When you restart, choose not to restart applications.
See below for more informaton.

If you have the TomaETest VIX browser installed:
You must uninstall VIX and then uninstall any SEB that is already installed.
Then install regular SEB as detailed below.

אלו הצעדים הנדרשים כדי להכין את המחשב האישי שלכם לקיום מבחן ממוחשב:
  1. יש להתקין את הגרסה העדכנית של דפדפן הבחינות Safe Exam Browser 3.3.1 for Windows או Safe Exam Browser 2.3.2 for MacOS.
  2. יש להוריד את קובץ הקונפיגורציה של האוניברסיטה העברית: HUJI-Windows-3.3.1.seb או HUJI-MacOS-2.3.2.seb. זהו כעת למעשה קובץ ההפעלה של הדפדפן!
  3. יש לוודא כי הדפדפן נפתח על עמוד ה-EXAM Moodle האוניברסיטאי וכן שיש קישור ליציאה מהדפדפן, Quit SEB, בפינה הימנית התחתונה.
  4. אם המבחן מתקיים ברשת הויי-פיי הייעודית למבחנים, exams-test, יש להתחבר קודם לרשת זו ורק אז לפתוח את הדפדפן. יש לוודא ש-EXAM net (exams-test)‎ מופיע מעל הקישור Quit SEB

שלבי ההתקנה בהרחבה:

התקנת ‏Safe Exam Browser (‏SEB)
  1. יש להתקין על המחשב את דפדפן הבחינות Safe Exam Browser לפי ההנחיות להלן:
    • עבור מערכת ההפעלה Windows:
      • יש להתקין על המחשב את דפדפן הבחינות לחלונות: Safe Exam Browser 3.3.1 for Windows*
      • בחלון ההתקנה יש לאשר את כל השאלות.
    • עבור MacOS:
      • יש להוריד את הדפדפן למערכת המקינטוש: Safe Exam Browser 2.3.2 for MacOS.
      • יש ללחוץ על הקובץ שהורד ולהעבירו ל-Applications.
      • יש ליצור חשבון חדש לצורך עבודה עם ‏SEB ולעבור אל החשבון שנוצר.
      • כאתת ‏SEB יופיע תחת Programs.
    פתיחת ‏Safe Exam Browser מ-‏Programs (או ‏Applications) יאתחל את הדפדפן עם הגדרות ברירת המחדל,
    אולם יש צורך להשתמש בהגדרות של האוניברסיטה העברית כפי שיפורט בסעיף הבא.
  2. לאחר התקנת התוכנה, יש להוריד את קובץ ההגדרות הספציפי לאוניברסיטה העברית, ‏HUJIhujiSEB configuration file.
    ללא קובץ זה לא תוכלו להכנס למבחנים.
*Important note: The above Safe Exam Browser 3.3.1 for Windows executable and HUJI-Windows-3.3.1.seb configuration file are SEB version 3.3.1.
If you have already have SEB version 3.1.0, 2.4 or 2.3 installed, you can continue using it with the previous version of the HUJI SEB configuration file. (Still available at HUJI-Windows-3.1.0.seb, HUJI-Windows-2.4.seb and HUJI-Windows-2.3.seb).

פתיחת Safe Exam Browser
כדי לפתוח את דפדפן הבחינות עם הגדרות האוניברסיטה, יש ללחוץ פעמיים על קובץ הקונפיגורציה שהורד.
  • On MacOS a popup will appear:
    "Safe Exam Browser" is an app downloaded from the Internet.
    Are you sure you want to
    open it?
    Click on Open.
  • In both Windows and MacOS, 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 Programs (or Applications) will also use the HUJI configuration.
    Note: This popup will appear only when you open SEB from the configuration file rather than from Programs (or Applications).

איך תדעו שאתם במקום הנכון?
אם דפדפן הבחינות נפתח על דף הכניסה של מערכת מודל בחינות של האוניברסיטה העברית, EXAM Moodle
ובנוסף לכך יש כפתור Quit SEB בפינה הימנית התחתונה אתם במקום הנכון.
אם לא, כנראה שההתקנה לא בוצעה כראוי ויש לחזור עליה מחדש לפי ההנחיות.
אם יש לכם גרסה ישנה של הדפדפן או של קובץ ההגדרות, תהיה הודעת שגיאה בפינה הימנית התחתונה של המסך.

התחברות לרשת הויי-פיי של המבחנים , exams-test
אם התבקשתם להתחבר לרשת המבחנים, exams-test, תשתמשו ב-:
שם המשתמש
(או שם המשתמש moodle_exams וסיסמה exams_moodle).
אם אתם מחוברים, EXAM net (exams-test)‎ יופיע מעל הקישור Quit SEB.

שימו לב – אין אפשרות להשתמש ברשת זו לכל שימוש אחר מלבד בחינות.

זהו המחשב שלכם מוכן למבחן!

בדיקת ההתקנה של ‏Safe Exam Browser
  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.
      If you are connected on the exams-test network, EXAM net (exams-test) will appear above the Quit SEB link.
  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.

Notes for Teachers:

If you lose your connection to Moodle...
If there is a temporary network disruption or if Moodle is not responding then, if you have made changes since losing connectivity, the following appears at the head of the page:
Network connection lost. (Autosave failed).
Make a note of any responses entered on this page in the last few minutes, then try to re-connect.
Once connection has been re-established, your responses should be saved and this message will disappear.
Any changes that you made since connectivity was lost, and any changes that you continue to make while this message is still displayed, will be lost if you reload the page.
So do not reload the page - unless you don't mind losing anything that hasn't been saved
(Saves occur automatically every 60 seconds, or when you move to another page, or click on the Save button - if there is one.)

Within a minute of the connection being restored, the following appears:
Network connection restored. You may continue safely
Note: If you click on a button while there is no connectivity then:
  • If you are working in SEB, all buttons will be disabled. However, you will still be able to click on link התאוששות מתקלת תקשורת (equivalent to סיום הבחינה...) to see if connectivity has been restored and enable the buttons when it has been restored.
  • If you are not working SEB, any unsaved changes will probably be completely lost


  1. If you cannot kill SEB:

    • If you cannot kill SEB on Windows:
      If when attempting to open SEB it asks you whether to Modify or uninstall?, you will have to remove the SEB configuration file association and reboot. See here.

      In general, we recommend creating a Restore Point before installing SEB.
      You will then be able, if necessary, to revert your Windows installation to its state before you installed SEB.
      Note: Reverting to a Restore point affects only the registry, drivers, system and program files - not your files and data.
      The steps in setting up a Restore point, beginning at Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsRecover, are roughly as follows: Step1 Step2 Step3 Step4 Step5
      Fuller instructions, for your version of Windows, can be found elsewhere.

      We also recommend saving files in other open applications before opening SEB.
      If SEB locks on a red screen, you may have to power cycle your laptop:
      Power it off by pressing for several seconds on the power button. Then power it on again.

    • If you cannot kill SEB on MacOS:
      If you close your laptop while working in SEB, your laptop may lock on a red screen.
      To unlock, forcibly shutdown your laptop.
      When you restart, choose not to restart applications.
      If there is no such option, then forcibly prevent applications from restarting by pressing keys option, command and esc as you power up.
      Next time you use SEB, make sure to start it from the HUJI-MacOS-2.3.2.seb file - not from Applications.

      In general, we recommend creating an account especially for SEB and using SEB in that account only.
      Alternatively disable Reopen windows when logging back in by disabling it in the popup that opens next time you restart or shut down.

  2. On Windows, it can happen that the first time you click on the HUJI SEB configuration file after downloading it,
    the EXAM Moodle login page shows the Quit SEB link but on subsequent occasions, a popup opens with message:
    SEB Installation is corrupted
    SEB found irregular files in its program directory.
    These might have ben left from an older SEB version is an update failed.
    Uninstall SEB using the Windows Control Panel,
    afterwards delete the SafeExamBrowser subdirectory from the Program files (x86) directory
    and re-install this SEB version freshly.
    List of spare files....
    Also, the EXAM Moodle login pages opens without the Quit SEB link.
    If this happens, it is most likely because your anti-virus has changed the SEB configuration. (The error message is misleading.)
    The list of "spare files" may include the names of some of the anti-virus files.
    You will have to reset your laptop to get out of SEB.
    If you cannot uninstall your anti-virus, you will not be able to do the exam using BYOD. (Temporarily neutralizing the anti-virus does not seem to help.)

  3. 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

  4. On Windows, it can happen that if you power cycle when your are in SEB, the Windows Task Manager remains disabled.
    To enable it again, in brief:
    1. Click on Start. Go to Run. Alternatively, use Windows key+R keyboard shortcut.
    2. Type regedit and press Enter. The Registry Editor will start. If the Registry Editor is also disabled, you will first need to enable registry editing.
    3. Through the left hand navigation pane, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\ Current Version\Policies\System. If the System key is not there, you will need to create it.
    4. In the work area, locate DisableTaskMgr. If this value is not there, you will need to create a new DWORD value called DisableTaskMgr. Double click on it. A window will pop up.
    5. Enter its value data as 0 and press OK.
    6. Close the Registry Editor. If the Task Manager is still disabled, restart your computer.
    For more information see the first question in the SEB FAQ

  5. On Windows, if a virtual machine is installed and one attempts to open SEB on the exams-test network, the page fails to load.
    It happens because the virtual machine changes the DNS settings.
    Changing to another network and reloading allows one to quit SEB in the usual way.
    The workaround is
    1. Disable Virtual Host-Only Network
    2. Change the DNS settings of exams-test to Automatic.
    For more information see the second question in the SEB FAQ

  6. On MacOS, it can happen that if SEB is already installed and one then installs a newer version, attempting to open SEB will require a password.
    If so, either create a new account and run SEB in that account.
    (It is, in any case, preferable to run SEB in another account.)
    Or follow these instructions
