General
How I Use It
Codecademy uses simple language to explain the mechanics of coding to students who have no prior experience in HTML, CSS, or other coding languages. I will continue to use this site with my computer skills classes to teach students website development and design.
My Take
I use this website when I introduce my computer skills class to coding languages like HTML. The students especially like this website because they can see the changes that one line of coding can make to their websites. I would prefer if the preview window would stay open next to the coding window, but switching back and forth is not too much of a hassle. Their simple instructions are easy to follow and students learn how each tag performs its own task.
