Known Issue: Respondus Not Connecting to Blackboard 
In Spring 2017, an update to Respondus prevented it from being able to sync with Blackboard using Windows 10 and the UMass Lowell Single-Sign-On. There is now a patch to resolve that problem: Use these step by step instructions or this job-aid with screenshots to apply the patch.
