The Rguroo Dashboard Quick Guide

This quick guide will help get you started with Rguroo’s Dashboard feature, available to faculty. Here we will show you how to form groups from among the Rguroo users (your students and other faculty users) and create data repositories to share with your groups.

To access the dashboard, login to your Rguroo account and click on the Dashboard button located at the top right of the Rguroo application window. Once you click this button, the dashboard application opens in a new browser tab.

Creating Repositories

A dataset repository consists of a set of datasets. You can share a dataset repository with the group(s) you form in the Rguroo Dashboard. To add datasets to a repository, you can upload CSV or Excel files from your computer, or you can import datasets that already exist in your Rguroo account, listed under the Data section in Rguroo.

To create a Private Repository, open the Rguroo Dashboard. Select the Repositories icon on the left-hand side of the Rguroo Dashboard window (for small screens, click on the three horizontal lines on the top-right of the dashboard window to see the Repositories option). This opens the Manage Repositories Menu. Here you can create Folders and Repositories. There is the option of creating Repositories within a folder or outside of folders in the Root Directory.

Creating a Repository Folder

Selecting the button at the top of the directory pane opens the Add new folder menu. Provide a name for the folder and select Apply. The folder will be created in the Root Directory. By Clicking on a folder name, you will see the names of the repositories within that folder.

Creating a Repository

There are three ways to create a Repository:

  • Within Folders: Select the to the right of a folder name.

  • In the Root Directory: Select the button at the top of the directory pane.

  • Duplicating an existing Repository by selecting the duplicate icon
