Adding Resources to Your Course

The following resources can be used to add content to your Moodle course. 

Respondus LockDown Browser and Respondus Monitor

Respondus is no longer able to support LockDown Browser on Windows 7 systems. Students using Windows 7 will need to upgrade to Windows 10/11 or find another device that is supported. LockDown Browser can be used with Windows 10+, Mac 10.13+, Chromebook, and iPads running iOS 11+ (the iPad setting must be enabled by the instructor). 

Respondus Quiz Builder

Respondus 4.0 is the tool we use at CCU to easily build tests and quizzes for use in Moodle. Respondus allows you to upload or import questions and create exams that can be published directly into your Moodle course. You can also use Respondus to print exams, retrieve questions from an existing Moodle course, and contact publishers through in Test Bank Network.
