Respondus Test Import Tool Available

WCU now has an institutional license for Respondus 4.0 which will allow faculty to import their MS Word formatted tests into Blackboard and to export tests constructed in Blackboard into MS Word and PDF files.

If you would like to use this service, send an email request to lmssupport@wcu.edu, and we will help you set up the feature in your course.


We Need Faculty Input on the myWCU Portal

The new digital front door for WCU is entering the second beta phase, and the folks working behind the scenes would love faculty input.

You are invited to log in and try it out as you go about your regular work.  Simply click the nearby button to try out the working beta.  

(Feel free to send us critique and feedback using the golden "Feedback" button at the top right of the screen.)
