As part of a Course Improvement Grant project, associate professor of biomedical engineering Will Grissom been using Pathbird, a tool that runs enhanced Jupyter notebooks (in Python, Julia, or R). It allows students to navigate to their site with no additional setup, and the instructor can interleave autograders, multiple choice questions, and short answer questions with coding and processing exercises. Will says that it has made his teaching much smoother and better integrated this semester and that he’s used it for exercises during lecture, homeworks, and take home tests. Read more here.

On Wednesday, December 8, at 11 a.m., Travis DePrato, founder of the company, will give a demo via Zoom. If you’re interested in attending, email Will Grissom ( or Cynthia Brame ( for the Zoom link.
