Coders code with code, so we Teach with Code

There are many approaches to teaching code. Unfortunately,  many make the mistake of going with block-based coding, while others create code simulators, in an attempt to introduce coding to students.

We have a different and proven effective philosophy:

We teach code with actual coding … how radical!!  Our courses are real-world centric: coders code with code, so we teach students with code, and the tools that coders use. And the results are in – it works really well!

Neither do we try to replace teaching techniques with gimmicks and games: good old fashioned teaching (that my father taught me), combined with years of actually coding experience, is the foundation of our coding curriculum, and as such, we achieve amazing student outcomes.

Students learn from 360 video lessons, quizzing and assignments

With StudioWeb, students learn to code with video, supported by instant quizzing, and code challenges. The code challenges that come after the video lessons, have students write real code as our StudioWeb engine evaluates it instantly.

In addition, StudioWeb provides 57 assignments that allow students to build real things (web pages, responsive sites, animations in web pages etc …) with the coding skills they acquire in the StudioWeb app. We also provide a grading rubric for the projects with 3 levels of assessment that make it easy for teachers to evaluate student projects. It’s easy to use.

The secret to our success?

StudioWeb has been refined over the last 6-7 years. Built with feedback from many teachers, and data from ~200k students.
