Respondus

FAU has purchased a site license for Respondus, a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard. Exams can be created offline using a familiar Windows environment. Whether you are a veteran of online testing or relatively new to it, Respondus will save you hours on each project.

License and Installation Instructions:

Click here to download the file. Locate the file on your hard drive and double-click it to start the Respondus installation program. During the installation process you will be asked to enter the name of the institution, the local support contact, and the installation password. The information must be entered EXACTLY as follows:

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

We recommend that you accept the default settings for where the program is installed.

It's important to note that you are not able to download the software directly from the Respondus website, nor are you able to use the password listed above to activate a copy previously downloaded from their site.

Context-sensitive help is available throughout the Respondus program by pressing the F1 key. It is also available by selecting “Help” from the pull-down menu on the toolbar. A copy of the Respondus User Guide (in Word/WordPad format) can be downloaded from 
http://www.respondus.com/products/userguide.shtml

If you have questions or problems using the Respondus software, you should first consult the online help or Respondus User Guide. If you are still unable to resolve your problem, submit a Canvas Help ticket to our FAU Help Desk.
 

Our license with Respondus, Inc. does NOT permit instructors to obtain support directly from Respondus, Inc. If our staff is unable to solve a particular question or problem, we will contact Respondus, Inc. on your behalf.

Our license DOES permit you to install a copy of the Respondus software on a home computer. However, please note that you are not permitted to provide the Respondus software or the password information to anyone who is not affiliated with our institution. Such an action is a violation of our licensing agreement with Respondus and is also illegal.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity and that you find the Respondus software useful.

When you click on the attached link to download the program save the program to a folder on your computer. The file you download is named “Respondus4Campus.exe”.  Locate the file on your hard drive and double-click it to start the Respondus installation program. During the installation process you will be asked to enter the name of the institution, the local support contact, and the installation password.
