Akindi Importer Assists with Question Banks and Quizzes

Akindi logo

The Akindi Importer is available and supported as the newest addition to our assessment tool suite within Online@UT (Canvas). The Akindi Importer is particularly useful for faculty who wish to create large question banks or individual quizzes efficiently and quickly. Faculty can create their questions in Microsoft Word and upload that file into the Akindi Importer. The importer will automatically detect and convert the questions into a QTI file which can be imported back into your Canvas course site as a question bank or quiz. Supported question types include multiple choice, multiple answer, open-ended question, fill-in-the-blank, and matching. Akindi Importer is available to all faculty regardless of their computer’s operating system as it functions within a web browser.

Please visit the Akindi Importer support documentation within the Online@UT (Canvas) Resource Guide for detailed information.
