Students need a numerical computation tool for classes ranging from numerical methods to signals and systems to advanced chemical engineering. GNU Octave is a free and open-source software package that bundles tools similar to those bundled by MATLAB. Unfortunately, many students are put back by the advanced technical knowledge needed to install and use GNU Octave.
Octave Online is an online tool that attempts to make GNU Octave more accessible to students, enthusiasts, and scientists. It supports interactive sessions, plots, script files, and more.
Octave Online currently averages 1000 sessions per day during the school year.
