How I Use It
Using this product is one of the best tools for learning basic coding. I complete about 7.5 hours of work on code academy and it builds your skills from the most basic moving you toward more advanced skills. The learning program starts of with the most basic skills for html. Then you move to the html structures using lists, then to HTML tables and divs. Once you have finished the html basics, you will start learning CSS. You will get an introduction to CSS, then classes and ids and lastly elements. So if you are looking for something to start teaching students basic HTML and CSS working at their own pace. This program is for you!
My Take
I love this product and think it is a place to start learning basic coding. I like how it walks you through the basics starting with the least level skill and moves toward a higher level skill. This will give the students skills to build their own pages, make portfolios electronically, etc. I have nothing bad to say about this program, it is absolutely awesome for those who want to learn or teach coding.
