learnr: Interactive tutorials for R

The learnr package makes it easy to turn any R Markdown document into an interactive tutorial. Tutorials consist of content along with interactive components for checking and reinforcing understanding. Tutorials can include any or all of the following:

  1. Narrative, figures, illustrations, and equations.

  2. Videos (supported services include YouTube and Vimeo).

  3. Code exercises (R code chunks that users can edit and execute directly).

  4. Quiz questions.

  5. Interactive Shiny components.
