    Why Use Respondus?

    Respondus offers several advantages over creating quizzes and surveys in Blackboard Learn:

    Import Questions

    You can import entire tests or question banks directly from text and Microsoft Word files. This can greatly save time for faculty using previous paper-based exams or publisher-provided test banks.

    Insert Assesments into any Blackboard Learn Course

    Once you've created a quiz, self-test or survey with Respondus, it's a snap to tell Respondus which course section you wish to upload that assessment into, and you can even automatically create an icon linking your assessment in any folder of your course's content area.


    Camtasia is a screen-recording and video production program by Techsmith that has been used by faculty to create pre-recorded lectures, demonstrations, tutorials, and other presentations.

    • Record a voice-over track simultaneously, or after the screen-recording is done, as well as a small webcam video if desired.
    • Extensive highlighting, zooming, hot-links and other mark-up capabilities.
    • Add interactive quiz questions to reinforce content or collect feedback.
