Hello I’m Nathifa, and I have been using codecademy about 5 years now, mainly as an instructor introducing kids to HTML, CSS and Javascript. I was a bit disappointed last year when the Instructor tools were taken away in October, as it affected the way I was able to include codecademy into my regular instruction.


There’s a post here which mentions this change and the rationale.

We’re still aiming to bring a new and improved teacher tool to Codecademy in 2018.

i borrowed this answer from oduffy, the original answer can be found here


Thank you, I understand the business rationale and did see that note. My biggest disappointment was the timing, as it affected the way many automated processes, syllabus requirements etc were already created right before or in the case of many higher ed institutions, just as a new semester started.


Hi i am new to Codecademy and thank you Clayton Blatchelor for creating this site.
