Codecademy is a place where anyone can learn how to write code. The only problem was Codecademy’s early lessons assumed that you already knew or could figure out some HTML basics. As I learned through Mashable on Monday, that has changed.
Codecademy is now offering lessons in basic HTML and CSS. Now even people who can’t code a hyperlink can learn to program. Codecademy’s new lessons in basic HTML start with the very basics of explaining what HTML is, what it does, and how to write the basics. There are seven progressively more difficult lessons that students can work through on their own.
Applications for Education
Whether as part of formal class during the school day or as part of an after school club activity, Codecademy’s lessons could be fantastic for helping students learn how to develop webpages. Once they have the basics down, students can progress to more difficult challenges like building web applications.
