D2L updates & quick tips

Build Tests and Quizzes with Respondus

leave a comment »

Manually typing up test questions in the Desire2Learn Quizzes tool can be tedious work, even if you have a pre-made test in Word and are copying and pasting into D2L. Respondus is a program that can scan your pre-made test or quiz and upload the questions into a Desire2Learn quiz. There is a bit of a learning curve, since the test in Word must be formatted in a special way for Respondus to recognize the correct answers, but if you are creating a test of more than ten questions, or simply do a lot of quizzing in Desire2Learn, it can be worthwhile to learn how to use.

Below is the link to download and install Respondus. It is free for faculty in the PA State System of Higher Education:
