Webucator Announces New Kids Coding Initiative
Dec 29, 2014
Technology is rapidly changing the way the world works. For our workforce to stay competitive in the decades to come, our children must learn to write code. Organizations like Code.org are working to ensure all kids have the opportunity to learn computer science and to get kids excited about coding. We want to help too.
Webucator provides technology and business training to companies and organizations. We have developed a wide selection of self-paced technology courses, including courses on web development, which we sell to companies and organizations. In 2014, we started giving these courses away to library patrons around the country and to homeschool students. To date, over 2,000 kids have enrolled in our courses at no cost!
Effective immediately, any high school or college student in the United States can take our self-paced courses for free.
To register for a course, students simply:
- Go to our Self-paced Courses page.
- Click the Order Now button next to the course.
- Enter CODE4KIDS for the Coupon Code and click Validate Coupon.
- Complete the registration. Students will need to verify that they are a student over the age of 13.
- For any registration questions, simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all there is to it. The courses are self paced, so students will need to have some discipline to get through them, but they will learn a lot if they make the effort. We’re hopeful that our courses will help kids develop much needed skills that will help them succeed in the workplace in years to come. Plus, a lot of this stuff is just fun to learn!
