[IPython-dev] IPython for Education

I’ve been impressed by the use of IPython Notebook in tutorials at SciPy and other places and have been using slides generated using nbconvert for my Data Science class at General Assembly and I am interested in taking it to the next level. I feel like there’s a lot of potential, especially with widgets (and someone mentioned XMPP) for bringing interactivity into the classroom, though I’m not sure if I have the knowhow to pull it off myself. One example of something that would be cool is if I (as instructor) could look at what students are working on and easily aggregate their results for presentation to the class. (So, say the students are working on a classifier. Aggregate the results of each student’s classification accuracy and present them back to the class.) This is maybe not the best example, it’s just the first that came to mind. Wondering if anyone is working on anything like this. By “this” I mean extensions to IPython specifically for the classroom (could be something completely unrelated to my specific example).
