For faculty:

If you do not have a login account, please register here. In the proposal form, provide details about your lab course, problem statements, titles of the exercises.
  2. In the proposal form, choose between providing the R code for the problems mentioned in the proposal form by yourself or floating the problems to the Lab Migration Project community.
  3. In case you are not providing the R code, other community members can propose to give the R code for the problems mentioned in your Lab Migration proposal.
  4. While filling the proposal form, select whether you want the R codes of the problems mentioned in the proposal form to be made available for other members to view/download/use.
  5. Once you have filled all the required fields, submit the form. On successful submission of the proposal form, you will receive a notification e-mail.
