When it comes to teaching students to code, there are various apps and online courses that can do that, but hey, having more options is always good, right? Now if you’re a student or just someone looking to learn to code for the web, there is an app called Coding with Chrome that will teach you just that.
According to the description, “Coding with Chrome is a Beta Google project that provides a programming platform that works offline. Students are able to program in Blockly, Coffeescript, HTML, JS with output to Logo Turtle and/or connected toys (e.g. Sphero, Lego Mindstorms).” However it should note that it is still in beta so there might be some kinks to it, but other than that it appears to work just fine.
The app focuses on teaching students how to code via a visual interface, a long way from the dreary days where programmers had to learn from thick books and code via plain interfaces like Notepad or DOS. As the description notes, Coding with Chrome will be available for use offline so even if you don’t have an internet connection, your education can continue.
The app is free for download so if you are interested in checking it out and what it has to offer, head on over to the Chrome Web Store for the download, or watch the video above to get an idea of what to expect.
