Notebooks is a cloud platform instantly ready for use. It is especially well-suited for teaching and research. Notebooks provides easy-to-use environments for programming and working with data. 

Different environments based on Jupyter Notebook, RStudio Server and Apache Spark are available via Notebooks. You can access the service via your web browser using a CSC account or your home organisation's Haka or Virtu credentials.

For teachers it is possible to create a teaching environment or produce their own teaching materials. Nothing new needs to be installed on university computers or students' own laptops.

The use of Notebooks does not require any prior knowledge on programming or system management.

For a 30 minute walkthrough of Notebooks and its custom environments, please watch our introductory webinar.

Notebooks is powered by Pebbles software. You can read about the power usage of the system in Pebbles documentation.
