Azure Notebooks is a free hosted service to develop and run Jupyter notebooks in the cloud with no installation. Jupyter (formerly IPython) is an open source project that lets you easily combine markdown text, executable code (Python, R, and F#), persistent data, graphics, and visualizations onto a single, sharable canvas called a notebook.
Academics can simply share the link to their Azure Notebook using the Share Notebooks feature https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/notebooks/quickstart-clone-jupyter-notebook#share-a-notebook
To share your copy of the cloned project, use the Share control or obtain a link, obtain HTML or Markdown code that contains the link, or create an email message with the link:
Because you cleared the Public option when cloning the project, the clone is private. To make your copy public, select Project Settings, set the Public project option in the popup, and then select Save.
Select a notebook in the project to run it. Each notebook in the Azure Cognitive Services repository, for example, is its own self-contained Quickstart. The image below shows the result of using the BingImageSearchAPI notebook, after adding a Cognitive Services API subscription key and changing the search term "puppies" to "bunnies":
When you're done running the notebook, select File > Close and halt to close the notebook and its browser window.
To share an individual notebook in the project, right-click the notebook and select Copy link (keyboard shortcut: y):
To edit files other than notebooks, right-click the file in the project and select Edit file (keyboard shortcut: i). The default action, Run (keyboard shortcut: r), only shows the file contents and doesn't allow editing.
Or you can simply take the URL https://notebooks.azure.com/jakevdp/projects/pythondatasciencehandbook and post this to your LMS for student to access.
From your public profile page, select My Projects at the top of the page:
On the My Projects page, select the up arrow button (keyboard shortcut: U; the button appears as Upload GitHub Repo when the browser window is wide enough):
In the Upload GitHub Repository that appears, enter or set the following details, then select Import:
GitHub repository: Microsoft/cognitive-services-notebooks (this name clones the Jupyter notebooks for Azure Cognitive Services at https://github.com/Microsoft/cognitive-services-notebooks).
Clone recursively: (cleared)
Project name: Cognitive Services Clone
Project ID: cognitive-services-clone
Be patient while the process completes; cloning a repository can take a few minutes.
Once cloning is finished, Azure Notebooks takes you to the new project where you can see the copies of all the files.
Projects can be thought of as a grouping of related notebooks. They can be Private or Public (default). Projects are how a group of notebooks is generally shared with others. You can also share an individual notebook directly via its URL. In a project, right click the Notebook and do a Copy URL – do not use the URL you see in your browser.
Notebooks can currently be added to a project in different ways:
When you add a notebook directly from Jupyter, it will end up in your currently active project (Default or another one you created).
What can users do with a shared project/notebook?
To Share a notebook:
This works by simply using the following code.
