The success of a Canvas Network course, Introduction to Hour of Code, has prompted us to offer it again!

This free, self-paced, higher education course is a team effort among Canvas, Vocareum, and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University.  The course will help computer science teachers at all levels add a coding component to their classroom and provide guidelines and best practices for facilitating an Hour of Code

Teachers will have access to virtual computer science labs to support coursework in data science, programming, robotics, and more--all without ever having to leave their Canvas learning management system (LMS). Teachers who complete the course with a grade of 70% or higher will be eligible for an 8-hour Professional Development Certificate issued by Arizona State University.

More than 600 students enrolled in the first course, with 89 applying for Continuing Education Unit credit. This second version of the course will have updates including additional how-to content, more quiz questions, and expansion of “unplugged” sections to help teachers of young learners.

To take part in the course, sign up here. Introduction to Hour of Code will be available from March 11 to August 19, 2019.

 

Keep learning,
