Now students can learn about coding from anywhere! Assign coding videos to your class from your teacher dashboard. Kodable will add the videos to their profile to watch at school, at home, or wherever they access the game.
What do the coding videos cover?
The Kodable coding videos cover a wide array of coding concepts. There are two categories of videos:
Instructional Concept Videos - Concept videos teach students about one of the coding concepts taught in Kodable, including loops, functions, variables, properties and more.
Coding Activity Videos - Activity videos provide instruction and a prompt for students to complete an activity either in a specified area of the game or off-screen (unplugged). Kodable Coding Missions fall into this category.
How do I assign coding videos?
Video assignments allow you to share a video directly with students for them to view while logged into their Kodable profile.
- Select the "Videos" tab on the left side of your teacher dashboard
- Choose "Concept Videos" or "Activity Videos".
- Find the video you want students to watch
- Click "Assign Video to Students"
How do my students get to their assigned videos?
Students click on the "videos" button while logged into their profile and it will open a viewer (see below) with their assigned videos available.
Students will see the most recently assigned videos at the top of the page. For example, if you assigned a video last week, another yesterday, and another today, students will see the most recent assignment (today's) first.
(Below is the student view of their video assignments)
How can I see what my students see?
To view and assign the student videos, use the "view" button after clicking the "videos" tab.
Are you planning to use video lessons with your students in the fall?
