Why Should I use Turnitin?

  • Check for potential plagiarism
  • Drag and drop frequently used feedback comments
  • Leave voice comments
  • Grade by rubric

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 anything on the screen including websites, application, PowerPoint slides, or a combination of these.
  • 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.

Google Apps for Education

CSU Chico offers a school-sponsored Google Apps for Education account to all students, faculty and staff.

In addition to Gmail, a number of other Google Services are accessible through the Wildcat login, including YouTube, Picasa, Blogger, Maps, Google+ and more.
