CodeHS gives you access to all the curriculum in the Course Catalog as well as additional user-created content. You can add entire courses, specific modules, single assignments, projects, and playlists to any existing Course.

Once you have created a Course in CodeHS, you can add additional content from your Create page, the Course Catalog, the Project Catalog, the Problem and Playlist Banks, or you can copy content from another one of your courses.

Assigning Content from the Course Catalog

You can add an entire CodeHS Course to an existing Section, or you can pick and choose specific content such as Supplemental Material or other individual units from any course.

From your Assignments page, Click Add > CodeHS Course:

Then filter to search for and select a Course:

From here, you can choose what modules and lessons you want to assign.

  1. Select individual modules from the Main Content or Supplemental Content

  2. Using the dropdown, choose Select All Main Content and/or Select All Supplemental Content

  3. Click Show All Lessons to select individual lessons

  4. Click Assign Selected when you are ready to assign the selected content:

Assign Content from the Playlist Bank or Problem Bank

  3. Click the blue Assign button to add the assignment to your Course.

Supplemental Material

Supplemental Material is great for extra practice or for students that need an extra challenge!

You can assign supplemental material from the current course by scrolling down on your Assignment Page and Clicking Search for Content. Then, click Assign to add these to your section:

Assigning Sandbox Problems

You can also assign Sandbox programs that you or your students have created to your course! See Assigning Sandbox Programs to Students for more information.

The Assign Button

Whenever you're logged into your account and see the blue Assign button, this means that you can add this content to your Course or Section. You'll be prompted to configure settings for the material when you assign it. Pro settings will only be available to Sections that have a Pro License.

After assigning, head back to your Section's Assignments page, and you'll see the new modules at the bottom of the assignment list. You can further customize your section by Deleting a Module, Lesson, or Activity and Re-ordering Content.
