EduBlocks is an online coding platform for Python. There are projects and learning resources to help you get started and then you can start coding Python with blocks before transitioning to text-based coding. Being able to see the Python text on the blocks is useful when introducing the new language to learners. Once you’ve built your script with blocks this can then be viewed and edited as text, just like the real thing.
