dc.description.abstract The National Center For Genome Analysis Support successfully expanded the Introduction to R for Biologists Workshop from a locally offered, 30-person course to a full Massive Open Online Course. The course went through several iterations as an in-person course, then a hybrid course, in order to solidify materials (including Jetstream Cloud virtual machines) and record video lectures. This work was done in conjunction with several IU teams. We were able to show that teaching mode had no effect on learning outcomes, that participation and engagement did not suffer with an online course, and that instructor time was not largely impacted while scaling the course from 30 to 343 students. This course will continue to be offered in person locally (with reduced frequency) and in regular rotation as a MOOC, in order to meet the strong demand for basic coding skills in a domain-guided context. en
