Connect Respondus to iLearn (D2L)

You will need to do this when you first setup the software. You will be prompted to create this connection either when you attempt to Publish a quiz to your course or Retrieve questions from a course. Once you create this connection, you will not have to do this again.

  1. Select either the Retrieval tab or if you already have a file open, select Preview + Publish, then Publish, then Publish Wizard.
  2. Choose add new server from the drop-down.
  3. Choose Yes, check for preconfigured server settings, click Next
  4. Enter a name to call it (Ex: TN Tech iLearn) and select Next.
  5. Select the checkbox that says Save my Username and Password on this computer. This will allow you to remain logged in and continue exporting questions from different quizzes or question library sections without having to log back in. Do not do this on a shared machine.
    The steps above are only done once. After that, you will just select iLearn (or whatever you call this connection) from the Brightspace server list in Respondus.
