Students just successfully used R Studio Cloud (https://rstudio.cloud/) to present their major assignments in the BIOL4030 Research Design and Data Analysis in R course. A wide variety of topics and R packages were covered, including (but not limited to!) mark-recapture, species co-occurrence, video tracking of crayfish, and spectrophotometry. Everyone did a great job presenting their tutorials to the class. Although R Studio Cloud is still in alpha, it was the perfect platform for the culminating assignment in this class.
datacamp for the classroom
I am interested in leveraging online learning tools like DataCamp to facilitate and enhance student learning in the field of Data Science. DataCamp provides expert guidance and hands-on-the-keyboard exercises that help students learn faster and more effectively. That is why institutions like Harvard and Princeton Universities have adopted it into their learning programs. As a new initiative, I am bringing DataCamp to Trent University by using "DataCamp For The Classroom" in my Research Design & Data Analysis class for fall 2018.
As an Assistant Professor in the Biology Department at Trent University I started this blog with the intention of posting code and other analytical resources for the analysis of genomic data.
