I run a small number of half day extra-curricular (ie not integrated in an academic module) training courses using R and RStudio.
These are very popular and we have an upper limit of 25 participants. The courses include a two part introduction where students will use base R and will install another package (usually moments, psych or hmisc) for experience. This may be followed by one or both of Visualisation with ggplot2 and Data manipulation with the tidyverse.
We have until offered this either on our university desktop or on bring your own kit courses. Students much prefer the latter and it means we can run more courses (there is pressure on accomodation). But bring your own kit has problems with set up: disparate versions, idiosyncratic operating system issues, etc. It wastes time and causes frustration.
So instead I would like to try using RStudio Cloud. Suppose that RStudio could would increase the limit on the private spacest to 30 participants (to allow for instructors and TAs), I would create a space for each course and invite participants. However, this would I think entail inviting the participants for each course - having got an increase in the limit on invitees to private spaces - then deleting them at the end of each course to make room for the next bunch. Is this right? Would this be an appropriate use of RStudio Cloud? Is there a better solution that anyone can think of?
Thanks in advance
