Numbas training sessions and drop-in hours, June 2024

Next month we’re running a couple of training sessions and we’re also trying a new drop-in session for anyone who wants to talk about Numbas.

The sessions are free and open to anyone with an interest in Numbas.

All three sessions will take place on Zoom. Automatic captions will be available and you’ll be given links to all material presented. Please contact us if you need us to make any accessibility changes that would enable you to take part.
