How I Use It
In my Computer Information Systems class, some students wanted to code, while others wanted to focus on other topics. In order to meet the needs of different students I decided to use Codecademy for those wanting to learn how to code. It was a wonderful decision. Students can move through lessons at their own pace while staying engaged during each step of the process.
My Take
Super easy-to-navigate interface that allows users to choose a path and work at his/her own pace. My students have felt accomplishment from day one of using this site. They really like how they get immediate feedback when they finish a lesson. The lessons build upon one another, so they keep applying what they learn and continue gaining new skills.
