ZettaBytes aims at promoting and explaining big ideas of computer science to a general audience. his project was launched by the IC school at EPFL in November 2016 and is maintained by Hoang Lê Nguyên.
Cécile Hébert, an associate professor of physics at EPFL, uses Jupyter Notebooks to help students visualize the different variables involved in a physics experiment. This gives them a leg up in understanding concepts that would otherwise be hard to grasp. See the code at the git repository or try it out directly in NOTO.
The OSSCAR (Open Software Services for Classrooms and Research) platform is a collaborative environment targeted at enhancing awareness and adoption of best practises in Open Science and computational thinking, focusing on education and research.
Introduction to Astrophysics I. Interactive applications for learning and visualizing concepts in astrophysics. The apps are being developed by Prof. Frédéric Courbin and Dr. Austin Peel to accompany the Introduction to Astrophysics I course at EPFL.
Paolo Prandoni, a research scientist at the audiovisual communications laboratory of EPFL and an avid music lover, uses Jupyter Notebooks to teach the fundamentals of digital signal processing. For him, it is the ideal way to combine theory with practice. See the code at the git repository or try it out directly in NOTO.
Pol del Aguila Pla, a research staff scientist at the CIBM Center for Biomedical Imaging and a postdoctoral researcher at the EPFL Biomedical Imaging Group, has developed Jupyter Notebooks for the practical sessions given as part of two Master’s-level courses in image processing. These interactive Notebooks incorporate useful automated suggestions to help students work through the exercises they have to complete.
Graasp is a tool originally developed at EPFL. It provides a visually attractive groupwork environment in which you and students can post material. The material can be viewed and annotated by other users. This allows students to be quite active in building course material rather than simply being passive viewers of material that you post. Students who are engaged in group projects can set up their own site on Graasp for sharing their material and ideas.
Those plugins are designed to make the communication from Moodle to a JupyterHub installation possible, allowing Moodle users to access their Jupyter files from Moodle – and more. It is installed on EPFL’s Moodle, here is the documentation about how to use it.
