Pearson has partnered with Pune based Programmr, online coding technology startup, to create the next-generation of interactive platforms for learning how to code, using just a web browser.
Each “Learning Lab” seamlessly integrates Programmr’s programming lab technology into Pearson’s web-based learning platform that includes screencast videos, graphics, and interactive assessment; all embedded within an instructional text written by Pearson’s best-selling professional technical authors. Readers will be able to learn theory while simultaneously practicing coding skills in a real-time “code sandbox” environment.
Programmr, which was earlier called Programr has taken the programming lab and put it into the cloud so users can access the latest coding technologies from any browser, eliminating the need for complicated desktop tools, removing one of the biggest impediments to learning to code. The company pivoted to crowdsourcing model in 2013.
