Learning Management System

Our LMS allows teachers to enroll students in classes to assign lessons and track progress. Students' work is automatically graded, collected, and returned to the teachers' dashboard.

Curriculum

Students use Python to build projects through structured lessons, then modify their code to create custom projects. We use multiple exit points to support differentiated instruction.

What Do Students Make on Codesters?

Codesters empowers students to create interactive projects and apps on their own. Whether it's through our structured lessons or coding on our free Project page, students have the opportunity build and explore independently.

The sample student projects to the right will give you an idea of what's possible on Codesters. Click "Try It" to experiment for yourself! Visit our Explore page to see even more projects in action.

How It Works

Testimonials from Teachers and Principals

One of the nicest parts of the week of programming was that some of my students who struggle in my Math class were the leaders when it came to programming. What a confidence boost for them! To have the students who do well in Math asking these other kids who are just squeaking by in class for help was just amazing. I was very proud of so many of them. Thanks for everything!

The Codesters team has been instrumental in providing a comprehensive Coding program to the students at Global Technology Preparatory Middle School.

My students are highly engaged and are excited about progressing through the program -- some log on to work on the lessons at home.

The environment provides a rich, differentiated experience for all students, which has allowed all my students to excel...I’ve watched students who continuously struggle in math come alive and make connections with the programming tools.

I have been using Codesters to teach my students coding for the past two years and it has opened the eyes of my students to a whole new way of seeing the world.
