CheckiO is primarily for practice and skill improvement, and although it starts from a very low level, you should have some basic knowledge of the language and coding in general. The simplest task on CheckiO is to write a function that will sort strings. And even though the task is quite easy, the teacher still has to give the theory first, so that the student can actually solve it. The awesome thing happens after the student deals with this simple challenge, he will see the unique solutions of other CheckiO users and realize that the task can also be solved by using format or f-string. In this case, students learn not only by solving the coding puzzles themselves, but also by seeing other solutions.
Is the ClassRoom creation free?
The first class is being created free of charge, so that you can see for yourself how the additional tools for teachers actually work. The creation of the next class will require a one-time-fee of $10 per student.
Do I have to create a class in order for my students to use CheckiO?
It’s not necessary. CheckiO is a free-to-play program that anyone can join for free. The CheckiO ClassRoom is simply a set of additional tools that make it easier for a teacher to monitor and support his students’ activity, plus it grants full access and a broad spectrum of CheckiO possibilities for students.
We are a nonprofit organization that teaches children for free, but we want to use CheckiO ClassRooms as an additional teaching tool for our students. Would the price for us be the same?
Of course not! We are happy to help organizations that volunteer to teach programming to kids. Access for such organizations will be provided absolutely free. Just tell us more about the organization you’re representing in the comments when filling in the application and we will be more than happy to help.
