Great way to teach students to code, goes slow and has lots of references to help the students along every step.

How I Use It
I used it in my computer classes to introduce programming to High School students. I believe it is VERY important to teach students to learn at least a little bit of code. So many students today don't understand the work that goes behind their favorite app or website. The students were able to work at their own pace, they have supports put in place for the teachers and the students. I haven't found anything wrong with the program.
My Take
This was a great tool. I liked that the students could work at their own pace. Teachers can see the students progress. I really have no suggestions to make this program better, it is a great tool to teach students to learn how to code.
