How Students Can Use the Docs Tab

The Docs tab is a great place to point students when they get stuck. This can be found in the top right corner of any code editor under the Docs menu.

The Docs tab contains documentation for many of the concepts they learn in the course, including examples they can use to write their code. Students can also view the full documentation for a language by clicking See full documentation.
