Our mission is to make high-quality Computer Science education accessible to learners around the world.
Globally, education systems are embracing Computer Science as "the 4th science"—recognizing the vital role it plays in 21st-century life and employment. However, there’s a growing chasm between CS education and industry demand.
Enrollment is rapidly growing, yet student attrition rates are stubbornly high and are exacerbated by high course admin burdens and poor student experience. The landscape is disjointed—institutions lack the technology and tools to holistically address these problems.
We believe that the theory and practice of Computer Science needn't be mutually exclusive. New technology can enhance and improve the teaching of core computational thinking skills and their practical creative expression in programming.
Created originally to take the pain out of teaching computer programming, Codio delivers a teaching and learning experience that stimulates this creative potential in every student, developing the next generation of creators, not just consumers.
That's why we empower teachers and students with the technology and learning resources needed to succeed.
By embracing the ideas that students and teachers are individuals, teaching styles differ and students advance at their own pace, Codio enables teachers and lecturers to support and coach students to better outcomes, and self-learners to master skills at their own pace.
We plan to apply the Codio technology and learning experience to other subjects in the future.
