Learn How To...

Leverage Cloud solutions at scale

Equip students with industry-leading tools

Eliminate both technical and financial challenges

Learn why faculty-centric matters

Data science and programming languages like R and Python are some of the most in demand skills in the world.

Students interested in analytics and professors facilitating curriculums deserve to use industry-leading tools to acquire these skills.

However, it’s challenging to enable this experience in an educational setting, especially at scale.

The traditional tools to facilitate learning analytics simply aren’t great. Students and professors often spend way too much time troubleshooting systems and software, things that are a complete waste of time and detract from the learning experience. Additionally, there are seemingly endless IT hurdles and requirements.

That’s part of the reason we created RStudio Cloud, a brilliantly simple but powerful solution for teaching and learning analytics, especially at scale. RStudio Cloud solves many of the technical and financial challenges associated with teaching analytics. It’s also a joy to use for professors, students, and IT administrators.

In this presentation, Dr. Brian Anderson will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with leveraging the cloud to deliver analytics instructions at the undergraduate and graduate levels at scale.

Our hope is that you walk away inspired to think about ways you can leverage RStudio and the Cloud to enhance your students' experiences with learning analytics.
