Respondus is a tool for creating and managing exams, quizzes and surveys. Once created in Respondus, exams, quizzes or surveys can be imported directly to ELMS (powered by Blackboard) or printed for paper distribution.
It is currently available for use by UMCP faculty and staff through a license purchased by the Division of Information Technology. The Division of Information Technology renews the license annually on July 1.
Notes: Respondus is recommended for ELMS users who have at least basic experience with the Blackboard Quiz/Survey tool. If you do not have this experience, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the Division of IT Instructional Design and Development will assist you in receiving instruction on the Quiz/Survey feature. Also, check the http://training.umd.edu, Course Catalog, Learning Technologies Institute for offerings of the “IIT-Respondus” workshop.
