This is an archived page for the 2016-2017 Club Year.

Girls Who Code Clubs rely on several pieces of technology for the club to run smoothly. Below are some of the technologies we use. All of these resources are free to club participants.


Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) that is the center of education in a Girls Who Code Club. Assignments, Pre/Post Tests, and more are all stored in Canvas for accessibility and ease. Here, instructors take attendance, review and grade assignments as complete, and create real-time digital interaction inside their Girls Who Code community via Collaborations.
