Use Codio, a cloud-based development environment, to teach web development or JavaScript.

  • Having all students in the same development environment is extremely helpful.
  • Codio is helpful for teaching web development because it shows the file structure in the dev environment!
    • Students can all have the same file structure as set up by the instructor in a Codio project or project template.
      • This way you avoid problems where students are each working on their own machines outside of class, with varying file structures.
      • Jsbin and other online dev environments typically don’t include file structure.
    • When all students have the same file structure and see it in the same way, it is much easier to talk about.
