Top-tier universities worldwide are leading a trend towards standardizing on Jupyter notebook to collaborate around content that integrates compute and data. When combined with a robust e-learning infrastructure solution such as Vocareum, Jupyter notebooks become easy for students to adopt and inexpensive for educators to deploy. As a result, many of the top universities in the nation are now exploring ways to combine both Jupyter and Vocareum as part of their course work.
In the following interview, we explore how Columbia University’s Kyle Mandli, Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, is pioneering the use of Vocareum-powered Jupyter notebooks in courses that integrate a mixture of both mathematics and Python programming. Professor Mandli also co-authors an online book on Teaching and Learning with Jupyter.
