Respondus is now working in Moodle 2
Respondus is a third party tool, that you install on your own computer, that greatly simplfies creating online quizzes. The quizzes are uploaded to Moodle using the Respondus ‘Publish Wizard’.
Unlike Moodle 1.9 you will not need a separate Respondus (.r) username to use Respondus in Moodle 2, your normal university username and password should be used.
The Respondus ‘Publish Wizard’ should be set up using the following settings:-
Server Domain = cumoodle.coventry.ac.uk
Base URL = /
Server port = 80
Secure server = No tick
Login Port = 443
Description = CUMoodle
Username = Your normal University username
Password = Your current University password
The Respondus software and installation instructions, together with the current Respondus password, can be downloaded from Curve.

Moodle works best with Firefox and Chrome. There are known issues with Internet Explorer that occasionally fails to display images correctly. Also the Internet Explorer does not support the new ‘drag and drop’ features of Moodle 2.
Staff can install Firefox or Chrome on their own desktop computer.
ITS are investigating how to add Firefox as an option for staff and students on the standard desktop setup.
