This page is for faculty members who previously published Respondus tests to Blackboard prior to Bb Learn's migration to the cloud on August 4th, 2018. If you are experiencing problems publishing your tests to your Blackboard courses, you may need to reconfigure the newest Blackboard server.
1. Log into Blackboard through Internet Explorer. Once you have logged in, open Respondus. If you do not have Respondus installed on your computer, view these instructions on how to install Respondus before continuing.
2. Open or create a new test.
3. Click on the "Preview + Publish" tab
2. From the sidebar, click on "Publish" and then click on "Publish Wizard".
3. Select the sever you usually used to connect to Blackboard. The one in this tutorial is called "Blackboard 9", but yours might be named something different.
4. If you see "bb9.uni.edu" in the server settings, click on "Edit Settings"
5. In the next window, click "Delete".
7. You will be taken back to the "Publish Wizard". Click on field next to "Blackboard Server" and select "-add new server-"
8. Make sure “Yes, check for preconfigured server settings” is selected and click the "Next" button.
9. On the 'Preconfigured Server Settings Wizard' page, name the server whatever would make the most sense to you (i.e. "UNI Blackboard Learn or UNI Bb Learn"). Make sure to select "Skip connection test" before clicking "Next".
10. Once you click the "Next" button at the bottom, this will launch the "Blackboard Authentication" window. Login into to Blackboard Learn in that window via the CatID link.
11. When you are successfully logged in, click the "Close After Login" button in upper right hand corner of that "Blackboard Authentication" window.
12. This should return you to the "Publish Wizard" and automatically advance to the next screen where you can now select the Blackboard Learn course in the first drop down menu. Then click "Next".
13. Then, select the folder you want your test to appear in and click "Next".
14. After it finishes uploading your questions, click "Finish". Your test will have been uploaded to the folder you selected in the last step.
