There are several reasons why you should consider conducting a course on CoCalc:
Managed platform: no time is wasted setting up, maintaining, backing up and securing a flaky platform. Instead, you can sleep while CoCalc ensures everything runs smoothly 24/7.
Focus on helping students: Jump right into a student’s file and assist via a chat on the side.
Proven track record: CoCalc is used for teaching since 2013 in hundreds of courses by tens of thousands of students.
Open source: CoCalc itself and every software it offers is open-source. Say good-bye to vendor lock-in, hidden licensing fees, and proprietary black boxes.
Student work is isolated: Each student does course work in a separate project.
