online or blended class
Vidcode is a project-based web curriculum with year long courses that are delivered in units. Our courses are developed in cohesion with one another, and as stand-alone environments. The projects in this course review previously learned concepts and introduce new ones through open-ended projects.The curriculum is designed for a semester-long course that meets five days a week, but it can be implemented in a variety of ways.
