Example case 3: Environment for web based Big Data courses

This university has course in working with big data. The teacher wants to create a ready-made course environment for working with data. The environment needs to be identical for each student.

This can be done by using several CSC services together:

  • Notebook: Enviroments for working with data and programming. Allows to set up the needed tools and data connections beforehand. 
  • cPouta: Create virtual machines for your students, set up clusters for processing big data, produce personalized computing environments and create application development environments.
  • CSC computing enviroments: Efficient computing platforms suitable for Big data are  available without cost for higher education courses.

There is no special type personal information in this dataset. 

There is no data that needs controlled access.

The project will be using CSC computing environments for educational use.

The data will be deleted after the course.
