Absolutely. Our Binder environment supports using R in Jupyter notebooks and RStudio. We have chosen to start developing Python Jupyter notebooks first, but we would love to see community-developed, open educational resources created in R. If you'd like to help us get started, see How can I create/adapt a lesson?.

Here's an example of RStudio running in our environment that was created by Matt Lincoln and David Brown for a 2019 Text Mining Workshop at Carnegie Mellon University.
