What is Respondus 4?
Respondus 4 (or Respondus 4.0) is a quiz management tool. Quizzes can be created using a computer application instead of the browser. Quizzes can be imported into D2L and Canvas without the use of a spreadsheet, or exported to a paper-style exam. Respondus 4 is capable of importing questions from textbook publishers into D2L and Canvas. It can also be used to import questions into D2L and Canvas from specially formatted Microsoft Word documents or text files. Also unique to the tool is the ability to export quizzes from D2L to other formats. Quizzes in Canvas can be exported by a file download and imported into Respondus.
