Digital exams are being provisioned in semester 1, 2020 via ExamSoft (for a small subset of papers) or via Blackboard or Moodle (where used in Health Sciences).


You will require a suitable computer and internet access for sitting your ExamSoft digital exams. You will be contacted by AskOtago about the computer hardware you have access to. Additionally, you will need a camera and a microphone.


It is highly recommended you use a laptop or a desktop computer to undertake your Blackboard examination. While it may be technically possible to undertake your examination on a tablet, you will find it very difficult to work on.

If you do not have a computer with the required features or are otherwise concerned about your access to the technology needed to undertake a digital exam, please contact AskOtago:
