Hi, Folks:

Many instructors who work with Blackboard will be aware of the ability
to batch-import quiz questions from a spreadsheet using the ‘Add
Questions’ button.

But writing each multiple choice question as the single row of a
spreadsheet is visually challenging compared with authoring a
multiple-choice question the way would would normally read it.

So– try this utility I wrote for one of our Faculty who does a lot of
quizzing with the Learning Portal. ┬áIt’s designed to make process of
authoring these batch import files simpler: you use a text file as a
template, then upload it to receive back the spreadsheet format Bb uses.


Thanks and regards,
