Teaching with MATLAB

 In partnership with GEDC/IFEES, MathWorks ran a webinar on tools for online courses. Here is a link to the recording:

Mathworks recently launched a Distance Learning Community where you can engage and exchange ideas with instructors and also ask/answer questions that might come up.

Teaching with MATLAB Training has a hands-on intro to Live Scripts, MATLAB Online, MATLAB Drive – highly recommended as you start exploring the online tools

MATLAB Grader - Automatically grade MATLAB code in any learning environment
