Abstract

Various WS-PGRADE/gUSE science gateways have been extensively used in educational contexts, supporting courses offered by different European universities and organizations. This chapter presents some examples of how WS-PGRADE/gUSE generic and customized gateways have been used in such courses. These examples include practical cases from a variety of scientific fields and educational styles. For each case, the educational context and the course organization are presented, with emphasis on how the respective portal has been adopted for the practical exercises. A summary of experiences are also reported, including advantages and difficulties faced for using these gateways in teaching.
