Would it be helpful to create a MATLAB interactive *.mlx notebook for this MATLAB programming course?
The notebook can be shared via GitHub and/or MATLAB drive. Most features if not all can be replicated in the interactive workbook.
From my experience, the notebooks work really well for interactive code along sessions. I am curious to find out whether promoting the use of interactive notebooks - *mlx files - is considered relevant and of interest to this community?

Hi, and thanks for the issue.

I've little experience with mlx but understand it's a similar idea to jupter notebooks. I'm happy to hear arguments for their inclusion, but my initial thought it that it would only serve to confuse things (when do you use a m-file vs a mlx?), especially when it comes to the part where learners write scripts and functions of their own.

I'm prepared to be convinced otherwise though :)
