Kodable is a somewhat slow website (and iOS app, no Android) which teaches "coding" in a somewhat rudimentary way. It is engaging for the children (tested on ages 4 and 6) but limited in what it can teach. Navigation is problematic as there are two interfaces and so sending a task from the teacher/parent dashboard to the children via a messaging app results in a lot of extra steps and sometimes does not work.

There is an underlying set of games that attempt to teach patterns and repetition, and then separate hour of code assignments that cannot be accessed through the main menu but via the hour of code directory.

While Kodable makes claims about teaching Javascript, this aspect is exceedingly weak. It is best to simply start directly with a straightforward javascript course.
