Cengage and Codevolve Partnership

Codevolve

Did you catch the announcement earlier this spring about Cengage Learning’s partnership with Codevolve?

Cengage worked with the San Francisco-based ed tech company to integrate Codevolve’s computer coding environment into MindTap. The collaboration brings computer science and programming instruction to students through hands-on practice designed to teach users to write and run code. Five MindTap courses were released this spring with Python, Java and C++ Codevolve labs! Codevolve’s integration into MindTap is seamless, with no additional installation required. Students easily use Codevolve to code directly in the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) from their web browsers.

According to recent data from Code.org, there are more than 600,000 open computing jobs nationwide, but only 38,175 computer science students graduating to fill this need. Kristin McNary, product team manager at Cengage Learning, says that, “as job growth in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) continues to outpace job growth in all other areas, demand for computer science skills is on the rise. Preparing students for success in the workforce is paramount as we develop new ways to improve outcomes through our digital platforms.”
