Respondus 4.0


Respondus helps instructors create and facilitate online exams. 

Respondus is a powerful software tool for creating and managing exams that can be published directly to Blackboard. Respondus users enjoy the ability to create assessments offline using an expanded number of question types (including calculated a algorithmic formats).  And after setup, Respondus enables one-click uploading to Blackboard courses.  

The University of Kansas has purchased a campus license, so that instructors can use it without cost.
