Alemira Labs: 04 August, 2022
Alemira Coding Lab
Jupyter Notebook Python labs
A new type of coding lab is introduced: the Jupyter Notebook Python lab.
The industry-standard Jupyter Notebook environment is widely used in the data science community and to teach Python. Now an author can do the following on the Alemira platform:
- Create coding exercises for data science courses
- Enrich coding tasks with built-in graphical output
- Reuse a huge number of community-supported notebooks and templates for teaching Python
Submitting partially completed lab
Now a learner can end a coding lab with a sequential walkthrough at any time, without having to complete all tasks. In this case, the current learner’s score is sent to Alemira LMS for grading.
Alemira Virtual Lab
New options for VM image management
Now an author can rename or edit custom VM images without the need to replace them in existing labs.
Better copying with the clipboard
The variables and code blocks in the lab instructions now have the Copy to clipboard option. This allows a user to quickly copy the block content to the clipboard and paste it into the lab environment.
