Callisto: Brining Jupyter to Classroom

Amey Agrawal (~amey48)


Description:

In recent years Python has fast gained acceptance as the preferred computing tool for academics across multiple domains, elevating its importance in classrooms. Jupyter, in particular, has proven its efficacy as an educational tool. However, setting up scientific Python environments can be troubling for newcomers, especially for those without prior programming experience. Further, it is exceedingly complicated for educators to evaluate graded components in Jupyter. In this poster, we would like to present Callisto, a tool we designed at BITS Pilani to improve the user experience for both educators and students using Jupyter in classrooms.
