Learning to code just got MARVELous @ CodeAvengers.com!
Code Avengers was created as a side project by New Zealand PhD student Michael Walmsley. His goal is to create effective learning resource with a gamified environment that makes learning fun and addictive--initially for web development but later for other subjects like math and finance.
Since going live on the 1st of April there has already been interest from over a dozen High Schools who are keen to use this as a resource in their classroom. Some initial feedback from teachers who have used the site personally are below:
Mark: “Love the site and the idea behind it. I would love to set my school up with this”
Malcolm: “This is EXACTLY the type of resource that should be made available to us!”
Julie: “Thank you so much Mike for developing these resources, this will be excellent for our students”.
Tim: “This is a nice package, and cleverly done! It's really valuable having the whole system in a web browser, as some schools find it very difficult to get software installed”
Corinna: “I have been trying out your program at home and I just wanted to let you know that I think it is amazing.”
The site contains a teacher's interface that gives immediate feedback on student progress which empowers the teacher to focus on the areas that students are struggling with as well as the individuals that need the most help. While the site was developed initially with the idea of helping High School students, Michael quickly found that anyone and everyone could benefit from using the style of lessons he has created.
