C-Books provide instructors with unrivalled flexibility and control in leading intro programming courses including: full searchable textbooks, interactive examples, practice exercises and challenge-based assessments that are auto-graded + supplementary practical labs (also auto-gradable) and free form project workspaces in containerized VMs to take students from theory and concepts to practical mastery.
With C-Books, instructors can adopt Codio’s own researched teaching syllabus with elements of the textbook compiled into a semester long teaching syllabus, or configure their own by ‘cherry picking’ individual elements of chapters, topics and assessment sets to create a custom syllabus. More than that, we’ve gone beyond the textbook to provide supplementary content and practical labs to allow students to go further in applying learning and demonstrating mastery.
C-Books saves instructors and teaching assistants significant admin time: all book content and assessment software are pre-configured in Codio’s powerful ubuntu-based cloud platform, use our syllabus by simply allocating modules to your class, easily add students and teaching assistants, track student progress through real-time insight dashboards, compile and run student code, integrate seamlessly with your own LMS for grade book exchange and single sign on. Put more time into mentoring and coaching students.
Many textbook based platforms claim interactivity but none are built on a student friendly professional development environment complete with ubuntu servers, a leading edge IDE, sudo access, advanced auto-grading code assessment engine, terminal access, visual de-bugger, Git-integration and more. Codio is used extensively by professional developers and educators keen to ensure students learn in a friendly but real world environment.
C-Books and the Codio platform are keystroke auto-save based which means your instructor dashboard allows you to see time stamps of student engagement, gain instant insight into student progress, track auto-graded assessment results, enjoy instant access to compile and run student code plus advanced tools to provide rich immediate feedback to students at every step on their learning journey.
Many institutions use Codio without textbooks for teaching courses from core CS1. CS2 intro programming and data structures courses, through to advanced courses in Big Data, Software Engineering, Cyber security, Robotics and Machine learning.
So aside from textbooks, Codio provides every instructor and student with uncapped access to project based workspaces, each an ubuntu instance with full sudo access to which the Codio IDE is attached. Allow your students to go beyond the textbook with their own programming projects for literally any programming language.
