Numbas open office hours

We’ve decided to start running weekly “open office” hours each Thursday. You can make an appointment to talk with the lead developer of Numbas, Christian Lawson-Perfect, about anything to do with Numbas.

Meetings will normally take place over Zoom, unless you specify a different method.

You could get help writing questions, integrating Numbas with your VLE, or have a more wide-ranging chat about using Numbas.

To make an appointment, use the booking form.

Using Numbas with Blackboard

With version 9.1 SP6, Blackboard finally fixed their SCORM player. That means that you can upload Numbas exams to Blackboard and it will save students’ grades into the Grade Center, just like any other assignment. Earlier versions claimed to support SCORM, but the implementation was quite broken.

In this post I’ll walk you through the process of putting a Numbas exam on Blackboard.


Numbas features full documentation which is always in line with the most recent version.
