Codecademy, the online education platform empowering millions of people to learn code, today announced a new partnership with Clever, the most widely used single sign-on (SSO) portal in K–12 schools nationwide. Codecademy’s Pro courses will be available in Clever Library, a catalog of high-quality digital resources that teachers can deploy to their classroom within seconds.
With most school districts across the country going fully or partially remote this fall, having access to online education tools remains essential for students and teachers. Through the Codecademy and Clever partnership, teachers can access Codecademy’s full catalog of interactive online curriculums for free, empowering their students to learn how to code in a fun and engaging way.
“We are proud to partner with the Clever team to share our learning platform with teachers across the country,” said Zach Sims, co-founder and CEO of Codecademy. “Since the pandemic, we have been committed to supporting learners and making online education opportunities accessible, especially for those affected by school closures. Working with Clever allows us to bring coding education to the classroom and make the biggest impact for both teachers and students.”
“Whether students are in the physical classroom or not, it’s important they have the tools and resources to continue learning. That’s why we are thrilled to include Codecademy in the Clever Library and provide access to online education experiences that not only help students develop new skills, but learn in an engaging, interactive way,” said Michelle Lu, Library Product Manager at Clever.
Since 2011, Codecademy has reached over 45 million learners from 190 countries, making it the largest online resource for computer science literacy and computer programming skills. Through its mix of free and Pro courses, Codecademy makes online learning engaging, accessible and flexible for its community of learners.
With Clever Library, educators easily browse learning applications by subject or grade level and read peer reviews. In just a few clicks, teachers safely install applications for students — and districts see what resources have been installed, who’s using them and how frequently they’re used. Codecademy has agreed to comply with Clever’s Universal Data Sharing Agreement, a set of security, privacy, and compliance practices designed to protect student data.
Codecademy Pro is available through the Clever Library beginning August 31.
