We’re continually working on Numbas, fixing bugs and adding new features. I thought that it would be a good idea to post more regularly about updates to the Numbas software, rather than waiting until each year’s major version release to list everything that’s changed.
I’m going to go into a bit more detail on changes than I normally would in major-release posts, to give an idea of what day-to-day development on Numbas looks like.
I’d like these posts to be monthly, but I’m about to embark on a month of paternity leave, so don’t expect another one until the end of October.
So, here’s what’s changed since Numbas v5.0 was released in June.
The first session is scheduled for 10:00 BST on Wednesday 15th July. It’ll run over Zoom and last about two hours. No previous knowledge of Numbas will be assumed.
Following demand, we’ve scheduled a more advanced training session, for experienced Numbas users.
This will take place at 10:00 BST on Wednesday 22nd July. Again, it’ll run over Zoom and last about two hours. Christian will demonstrate a few things, then there’ll be time to work through question-authoring problems from attendees.
The statements describe the accessibility requirements that we’ve designed Numbas around, some tips on how to use Numbas effectively with different assistive technologies, and details on the outstanding accessibility issues that we know about.
If you’ve got any feedback about the statements or accessibility in Numbas, please let us know.
