RStudio is a visual interface for the R statistics program.  Swarthmore runs an RStudio Server Pro instance at http://rstudio.swarthmore.edu (requires VPN from off-campus).  You can log into the server using your Swarthmore username and password, but first need to request an account.  

RStudio Server requires VPN when accessing the site from off-campus.


Class Folders

ITS can create shared folders for class use, which can be useful to distribute data files.  Email support@swarthmore.edu with your request.

Troubleshooting
