I am looking for anyone else who is also using the CSP curriculum from Code.Org. It doesn't seem smooth.
Hi Tammy Neil,
When I was a teacher I used code.org for my classes and had to manually roster my students there as it didn't support any type of integration. However, code.org has recently started supporting integration with clever:
Creating accounts for students – Code.org
Clever can be used to send rostering information from the SIS to code.org. In theory, that should be the same roster info that's sent to Canvas. I'm not sure about actually logging in.
code.org also supports log in with a Google or Microsoft account if that's what you happen to be using to auth into Canvas.
I think it's a great idea (and I did then when I was teaching) to contact code.org and suggest that they look at becoming an LTI provider allowing for robust integration with any LMS. I think that any real chance of this happening is going to be because they hear about the need from their users.
As far as grading goes, I would create an "offline" or "no submission" assignment for each lesson in the course, with a link to the lesson, allowing students direct access to the lesson from the LMS. Usually this was in a module which had supplementary resources as well. The benefit too is that I could just open the code.org gradebook in one tab and the gradebook in another and type in scores - letting students see their official grade in the LMS as they were used to (again something LTI could solve!)
