Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present the ari package for automatically generating technology-focused educational videos. The goal of the package is to create reproducible videos, with the ability to change and update video content seamlessly. We present several examples of generating videos including using R Markdown slide decks, PowerPoint slides, or simple images as source material. We also discuss how ari can help instructors reach new audiences through programmatically translating materials into other languages.
