Respondus is a powerful tool for creating and managing exams that can be printed to paper or published directly to Blackboard, WebCT, eCollege, ANGEL and other eLearning systems.

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.

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, direct your questions to d2l@oakwood.edu.

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.

Publishing Stipend Program
The purpose of stipends for research and publication is to encourage the faculty to complement their classroom activity by preparing manuscripts for publication in areas of their instructional discipline.  The objectives transcend merely getting “something” or “anything” in print and focuses squarely on getting what is taught in print so that the education process may be enhanced.
Applications need to be sent to Candice Davenport in Blake Center, Room 106, by March 23, 2017.  Recognition will be awarded at the last Faculty Meeting of the academic year.
