AppShed Academy Updates

Here you will find week by week updates on new courses on the AppShed Academy


November 8 - 15 2019


This week we decided to take a look at the organisation of the AppShed Academy. We found that the current layout was not quite right for helping teachers find what they are looking for quickly and easily. So we have rearranged it and made five key sections stand out. These are App Builder, Game Maker, IoT/Robotics Builder, Intro To Coding and Math. The other sections like School Apps and E-safty are now on the next page.

Work continued this week on Lesson 3 of the JavaScript multi-lesson course and work has started on a Blockly introduction course.



November 1 - 8 2019

This week again we have been working hard to insure our goal of filling the Intro To Coding section with great courses is met. Work on Lesson 3 of the JavaScript course has started and should be out by next week. We have also noted (thanks to your feedback) that our App Builder Intro course is looking a little dated so we have begun creating a new one with some new videos. We also created a new mini lesson for the Math section of the AppShed Academy using Blockly to create a super simple calculator, this is a great course for Year 4 and upward! This course can be found in the Coding section.

With the new week comes a new month and a new focus for us, the Coding Section! As we promised last week we are working hard to get the coding section of the AppShed Academy loaded with amazing courses and focus has started with a multi-lesson JavaScript course. Last week we released Lesson One which focused on commands used to hide and show images, this week we are moving on to Lesson two which which teaches you how to animate with JavaScript. We have also been working on our IoT/Robotics section with the release of AppCar Lesson 4, which focuses on Coding the AppCar.

  • JavaScript Lesson 2 (available to all users)
  • AppCar Lesson 4 (available to all users)



October 18 - 25 2019

This week we decided to focus on the Coding section of the AppShed Academy. JavaScript is such a powerful tool and such a valuable language to learn so we have started developing a multiple Lesson course on JavaScript and jQuery with Lesson 1 being released this week in the coding section. We also revised the Publishing and Sharing course making sure everything in it is still relevant, in that course we also now include how to install your AppShed apps onto a mobile device, this can be found in the App Builder section. Finally we released Lesson 2 and 3 of the AppCar course with lesson 4 coming early next week, all of which can be found in the IoT/Robotics Builder section.

  • JavaScript Lesson 1 (available to all users)
  • AppCar Lesson 2 and 3 (available to all users)
  • Publishing and Sharing (available to all users)



October 11 - 18 2019


This week we took a focus on the courses in the IoT/Robotics Builder section. This is due to our AppCar robotics kit which is coming out soon. With this focus we created lesson 1 of a multiple lesson AppCar tutorial. We also had quite a bit of fun creating a papercraft tutorial where students and teachers print and cutout little paper barricades to create an obstacle course for their AppCar to drive around(Hopefully using code mode).

  • AppCar Quick Start Guide (available to all users)
  • AppCar lesson 1 (available to all users)
  • AppCar Free Add-On: Barricades (available to all users)
