Uploading an exam to a virtual learning environment
Numbas produces SCORM objects which can be uploaded to any SCORM 2004-compatible VLE (virtual learning environment).
This page contains instructions on uploading a Numbas exam to Blackboard and Moodle. The first step is to create a SCORM package of your exam.
Creating a SCORM package
Each question and exam has a download link in the sidebar which, when clicked, offers a selecton of options. If you just want to make an exam available on the web and don't need to track scores, click the :guilabel:`standalone .zip (no SCORM)` link. For a version which can be uploaded to a VLE such as Blackboard or Moodle, click the :guilabel:`SCORM package` link.
In both cases, a .zip file containing everything needed to run the exam will be downloaded to your computer.
Uploading to Blackboard
At least Blackboard 9.1 Service Pack 6 is required to run Numbas exams. There's no way of checking your Blackboard version from within Blackboard, so check with your server admin that you're using a sufficiently recent version.
On the next screen, select the .zip file you downloaded earlier, then click :guilabel:`Submit`.
On the next screen you can set some options for your exam.
The default options are usually fine, but you should make sure that the settings under :guilabel:`SCORM availability` in particular are how you want them.
Click :guilabel:`Submit`, and your exam is ready to use!
Uploading to Moodle
Take a look at the rest of the settings on the page to make sure they're set how you want. The default settings are usually fine, though you might like to set :guilabel:`Hide navigation buttons` to :guilabel:`Yes` to save screen space.
When you're ready, click on :guilabel:`Save and display`. Your exam is ready to use!
