Pearson Partners with Pune’s Programmr to embed online coding in Pearson’s learning platform

Pune’s Programmr, an online coding technology startup, has partnered with Pearson, the global textbook publishing giant, and now an online digital learning company, to embed Programmr’s technology in Pearson’s online “Learning Labs”

Excerpts from their press release:

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.

and:

Programmr 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 first four Learning Labs cover topics including HTML and CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, and HTML5 Mobile App Development, with titles on additional popular coding technologies scheduled for publication later this year.
