Interactive Software Tools

The Center for Teaching, Research, and Learning provides multiple interactive software and teaching tools that instructors can integrate into their courses. Tools available through the CTRL include:


Panopto is a video platform that allows instructors to record, manage, and share video content and embed that content in CelticOnline. Panopto has built-in video management and editing capabilities.

Respondus LockDown Browser

Respondus LockDown Browser is browser and LMS plug-in that creates a secure testing environment for students. Respondus prevents students from cheating or engaging in unauthorized activities during online exams and quizzes. 


ExamSoft is a software platform used to ensure the security and integrity of assessments. Much like Respondus LockDown Browser, ExamSoft is designed to limit students' access to outside resources during exams and limit the risk of cheating.


TurnItIn is an online service that helps instructors manage assignment submissions while also detecting and preventing plagiarism in students' written essays and research papers.

Rise 360

Rise 360 is an online content creation platform that can be used to create interactive learning modules and other responsive content, such as quizzes, surveys, flashcards, and timelines. 

Video Resources

The CTRL curated a Video Resources folder in Panopto that includes tutorials and recordings of previously-held trainings on many of these software tools. That folder can be accessed here.
