Online Proctoring: An Interview with the CEO of Respondus

Recently, the Respondus News website published an interview with David Smetters, the CEO of Respondus. This interview addresses online proctoring and why the Respondus Monitor and Lockdown Browser are different from other solutions. It also explains how online proctoring helps deter cheating and improve student success rates. As the interview goes on, it continues to go into more detail about the benefits of Respondus, covering things such as cost, benefits to the university, and benefits to instructors. Check out the full interview at: https://news.respondus.com/2017/02/22/online-proctoring-an-insiders-view/

Updates to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra!

Effective March 4, 2017,  there are exciting updates to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra! New features include a detachable participant list, an easier to locate “create session” button, access to the guest link for the session without opening the session, and transcripts of all recorded sessions. The participant list can now be viewable at all times making it easier to see who the participants are, if their microphone is on, and if they are having trouble connecting – all while participating in the session. The “create session” button is now easier to locate in Blackboard. Finally, there are now  transcripts of recorded chat posts, making it possible to go back and read what went on during the session.
