The MOOC “Coding in your classroom, now!” started on 25 January and aims to help teachers introducing coding in their classrooms in the most natural and engaging way, without a need for prior coding knowledge.
Alessandro Bogliolo, from the University of Urbino is the course leader of this highly successful course with an active community of more than 5000 participants. Each week a live webcast is organised, and participants are engaged in playful coding activities, Bogliolo also encourages the teachers to try-out activities in their classroom and report on their experience by making use of the assignment tool provided by EMMA. Peer reviewing through the platform is used for evaluation of the produced material. The recordings of the webcasts are available here. You can still join in, enrol for this MOOC here (the course is in Italian).
