A Parallel Platform Package (PPP) is used with a particular teaching module and an appropriate corresponding platform resource.
The available PPPs that we provide information about are found in the collection below.
Most Parallel Platform Package libraries/languages require certain platform resources, such as a cluster or a multicore machine. Information about which platform resource is needed for a particular PPP can be found on the PPP page, or you can learn more about each type of resource.

The standard Java package java.util.concurrent contains utility classes which are useful in implementing concurrent programming in Java. This package includes a few small standardized extensible frameworks, as well as some classes that provide useful functionality and are otherwise tedious or difficult to implement.
WebMapReduce is a simple web-based user interface for creating and submitting Hadoop Map-Reduce jobs in practically any language. It is ideally suited for use in the introductory computer science classroom, requiring very little programming experience to write massively parallel programs.
Bootable Cluster CD
The Bootable Cluster CD (BCCD) is a software platform designed to allow parallel programming and distributed computing instruction to concentrate on the education and not the computing infrastructure necessary for it. It is an open source Knoppix-based live CD that provides the tools necessary to teach parallel and distributed computing (e.g., GNU compiler suite, multiple MPI bindings, OpenMP, CUDA, Java) that can be run on either a single system or on a network of computers that are automatically configured using custom networking tools to form an ad hoc temporary cluster.
