Our new lesson design has arrived!

Over the past few months we’ve been tirelessly talking to students like you to learn how we can improve the lesson interface. Today we are unveiling the results of this hard work.

Since a lot has changed, we wanted to take a moment to describe the big changes and where to find the things that have moved.

Moved ‘Run Code’ button.

Along with the reset code button, the run code button has moved from the top to the bottom of the interface.

Better Scrolling between the text and instructions

We’ve made it easier for you to scroll between code and instructions, so navigating lessons is quicker.

New ‘Get Help’ Menu

Our new ‘Get Help’ menu

Our new ‘Get Help’ menu shows you options when you get stuck, and also gives you access to a hint and the solution.

Improved solution display

You told us that the split screen solution was difficult to work with, so we’ve moved the solution display to more easily compare your code to the answer.

Q&A is now in the left pane

At the top of the left pane, you can toggle between ‘Q&A’ and ‘Learn’ to view our in-lesson forums and get help from your fellow students.

From the bottom left of the interface, you can open up the lesson progress menu. See your progress, jump between steps and reset the progress for the lesson.
