Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic is shifting the teaching paradigms to an online setting all over the world. The Galaxy framework caters to computational biologists a set of features to facilitate the online learning process and make it accessible to everyone. Besides the high-quality training materials, Galaxy provides easy access to data and the possibility to share the progress and achievements, both student to student and student to instructor. By combining the different features offered by the Galaxy framework and by choosing the adequate communication channels, effective training activities can be designed inclusively, regardless of the students' environments.
