As a teacher you are able to edit student information such as names and progress status.
On this page, you can track your student's work as they code away.
You can also download a report for all students as a Word document. This creates a document detailing your student's current work and saves it to your computer.
You can also share the code of any one student with other students.
When your students are ready, they can submit their code to you along with how they are feeling about their work.
To save the code from a classroom session, head to the save classroom page. Go ahead and download the file by clicking the "Download classroom html file" button.
This file will be used to start your next classroom session and allow you to resume with your class where you last left off
