Online IDE for Education

Codio's fully featured online IDE lets students code with syntax highlighting, debugger tools, virtual desktop for GUI output, & more—all from a browser tab!

An accessible browser-based IDE for education

Codio is the browser-based IDE for education. Codio reduces computer lab costs by providing a cloud-based IDE accessible from the classroom or from home on any device—even tablets and Chromebooks. With a browser-based IDE, there’s nothing to install or download. All you need is a web browser and an internet connection. 

The Codio IDE gives students everything they need to progress from beginner to advanced levels, including a superb debugger that runs in the browser. It supports Java, Python, C, C++, NodeJS, and more. You will find all the features you would expect including gutter-based breakpoint, automatic watching of local variables, manual variable watches, call stack, step over, step out, and more.
