Cool Tech Tool: CodeAcademy.com

If you’ve ever wanted to learn a little HTML coding to use in website content management systems, a great (and free) place to do so is CodeAcademy.com.

Code Academy offers an online, interactive learning experience. Lessons are broken down in such a way that you read a little bit of text lesson and then attempt a short coding exercise. You must complete each lesson before moving onto the next. Here’s a screenshot of a single lesson:

As you can see, the left panel is the text lesson. The middle panel is a code editor and the right panel shows the results of your coding.

Code Academy is gamified (similar to sites like DuoLingo), so you receive points and badges for completing lessons.
