For high-stakes exams you would need a feature to restrict access to assessments in Open edX, so a secure kiosk mode (lock down) browser needs to be used to display this assessment. We would like to discuss how to achieve this and develop such an integration with the open source freeware SafeExamBrowser (SEB).






Let's work together to come up with a prioritized list of things we would like to see gone from the current static asset pipeline from edx-platform.

The goal is to lower the threshold of pain for current theming, templating, and JavaScript work. We're not looking to make any major changes.
