Each lesson starts with step-by-step, multimodal instructions: text and a computerized text-to-speech option, followed by drag-and-drop animated instructions showing Codemoji moving from the Emoji Box into the Text Editor (in HTML lessons only). Students can run and get instant feedback on their code and progress at their own speed. There's a live-chatting feature, several how-to videos on YouTube, and a Codemoji Facebook page for additional resources.
Codemoji is a solid intro to web coding that's icon-based. Cumbersome coding text is transformed into a relatable emoji, and each emoji function is taught conceptually. There's no need to memorize strings of code, be a proficient typist, or have a deep understanding of coding syntax. This is especially helpful for emerging typists, ELL students, and visually based learners. Students can work at their own pace, have access to clear, multimodal instructions, and instantly see webpages and animations their code creates.
