Respondus is not compatible with tablets (other then iPads), cell phones or Chromebooks. Our web analytics tell us that 50% of our students are accessing our web resources with one of these devices.
Students with screen readers and other web accessibility software will also more than likely have compatibility issues.
Students are required to have a webcam and compatible device for Respondus to work. Workstations have been set up in the computer lab (Fish Bowl) at the South Holland campus and in the Computer Lab at the Oak Forest campus for student use.
