This article will walk you through the Academy; the place where you can expand your knowledge and become Codebots qualified.
The Codebots Academy is where you can learn all you need to know about Codebots, and become qualified in everything from building applications on the platform to working with our behaviours.
The Academy has four sections:
- Explore: A quick overview of your recent activity on the Academy, and qualifications you are currently working through.
- Qualifications: A list of all of our available qualifications.
- My History: An overview of your progress, and a list of your completed qualifications.
Qualifications are self-paced courses that group together lessons into a range of topics. Our qualifications are extremely flexible. Though we have a recommended structure to follow, you can start and stop lessons within a qualification in any order you choose. We will save your progress so you can come back and continue at any time.
A number of qualifications also have assessment tasks so you can test your knowledge (denoted by a blue colouring and medal icon). Assessment can be either an automatically marked quiz, or a practical excercise where we ask you to submit what you have built for review. Submiting your work for review allows a member of our Academy team to give you personalised feedback.
As new features are developed on the platform, we release new qualifications. Be sure to check back on the Academy to upskill on learning how to add new features and work with the Codebots behaviours to improve your application.
Lessons are content which we are trying to teach you. Most lessons are comprised of links or embeded content from our Library articles. The lessons are often broken down into multiple pages with different focuses on each page. We do recommend you progress through those pages in order, unless we direct you to do otherwise.
