As a completely web-based platform, CodeHS has many tools and resources to help students and teachers work together virtually and in-person as students return to school; all of these can help with COVID-related learning loss.

Customizable Learning Experience

Teachers can customize the robust CodeHS curriculum by creating additional activities, including coding activities, examples and quizzes. These can be used to review past curriculum and reinforce new concepts.

Learn how to create custom activities here.

CodeHS Practice Problems

CodeHS Practice is a bank of extra problems to help students gain a stronger understanding of basic programming skills, with has hundreds of curated problems and exercises categorized by language, topic, and difficulty levels. These are a great resource for students who finish lessons early, need additional practice on a specific topic, or are looking for an extra challenge.

Exercise Creativity in the Sandbox

The CodeHS Sandbox is a great way for students to stretch their creativity and write programs outside of the bounds of an exercise. In the Sandbox, students can start a program starting from scratch in any of our programming languages and create anything that they can imagine.

Teachers can use the Sandbox to assign individual projects, midterms, and end of year assignments, or as a way to encourage students to work on their coding skills outside the classroom.

Check out this recent case study to see how the Sandbox can be used to empower student creativity!
