jamovi Module Workshop

31 October 2018, Macquarie University


A key aspect to the jamovi statistical spreadsheet is the ability for it to be extended with custom modules. This allows any one to create and publish user-friendly analyses relevant to their field. Indeed, a number of modules are already available from the jamovi library.

This workshop works through the process of developing a module from scratch, and touches on analysis design, user interface design, and effective use of 'state'. The workshop will have some structured talks, but most of the time will be available for people to work on their own module at their own pace, with the workshop instructors available to field any questions that arise.

People are encouraged to come up with an idea for a jamovi module that they would like to implement, that they can develop during the workshop (even if they don't intend on publishing it). Modules can extend jamovi in a number of ways - providing analyses, plots, test selection, or even a little game.

Participants should bring their own laptop with jamovi and RStudio installed.

Assumed knowledge

People who are very keen, we encourage to work through the jamovi tutorials at before the workshop.
