During this time, Vidcode would like to support schools in any way they can. As such, they are offering their full coding platform and research-backed computer science curriculum for free to help schools and districts as they plan for potential school closures and student absences.

If your school or district is planning a closure for health-related reasons, you can apply to get access to Vidcode’s full computer science curriculum and coding platform at no cost.

Vidcode will provide you and your students with access to our courses, lesson plans, and virtual PD resources until May 2020 (Vidcode states they will happily extend this offer until your school reopens). Students will be able to access courses from home as a supplement to your other e-learning measures and teachers will have full access to our LMS to monitor student progress.

Vidcode is also announcing their Virtual Coding Clubs for students (11 years old and up) who want to make amazing things with code. Clubs are drop-in and meet every Thursday at 3pm EST / 12pm PST.
Clubs are lead by Vidcode coding experts! Students join virtually and learn JavaScript programming with a new project each week. All students who sign up for this club will have full Vidcode access until the end of the school-year.

Once registered you can invite your students to continue their learning (and parents too!).

Additionally, Vidcode will be running a series of virtual webinars:
• Vidcode 101, every Wednesday at 4pm EST
• Running a Remote Coding Club, Thursday March 26 at 1pm EST
• Successful Remote CS Classrooms, Tuesday March 31 at 2:30pm EST
