India’s Biggest The Hour of Code activity by goCODR

goCODR has just concluded India’s biggest “Hour of Code Activity” with 4870 students from 14 partners schools spanning 50 hours of coding and 10 days from Nov 15th to 25th. It was an enormous task no less than organising a rock concert especially for us an early stage edutech startup with a small team. But our big aspirations drove us through. You can read about why kids should learn coding here,and why India needs to push coding here.

About 2035 students completed their projects and created art design, coding exercises using sequential programming, for loop, while loop, if-else statement and more. Students made games such as flappy bird, basketball, art work and design, Minecraft exercises. Coding exercises involving Python, HTML, Javascript that is all the top programming languages for kids to create trivia games and more.

What is the Hour of Code?

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.

The Hour of Code is at its core not about learning a brand new skill in just one hour. One hour isn’t enough to learn how to code. It’s about increasing access to computer science by breaking stereotypes and opening doors. Somebody may learn programming concepts like loops, conditionals, or basic debugging through the Hour of Code. But a much more important goal is for students and teachers to learn that computer science is fun — you can start at any age, in any classroom, even if you don’t have a computer.

Post Activity Survey of participants 

After India’s biggest The Hour of Code by goCODR was over each student was given a survey to fill to share their feedback on coding and their experience. We found the survey very insightful and we hope you will also find it useful.

Insight 1 – 95% of the participants responded that they have never done any form of coding in their lives. And The Hour of Code organised by goCODR was their first attempt at coding. We receive the same feedback wherever we go. Not more than 1-2% of students in a school in a metro have experienced coding. So whatever we have seen so far is not even tip of iceberg.

Insight 2 – 68% respondents admitted that they were totally scared of coding before the activity.  They were totally anxious if they could do it. Most of them thought one needs to be an Einstein to even try it. We don’t blame them coding looks very intimidating from outside especially to children of parents who don’t have tech backgrounds.

But, within an hour of coding the perception changed drastically.  After the activity only 9% said they are still afraid of coding while 91% responded they are now excited about the coding. Looks like what can change in one hour but it was one of the most liberating one hour for students. They no more fear coding, they don’t get intimidated by the idea of learning to code. What we saw on their faces after The Hour of Code was only excitement to code.

Insight 3 – 72% showed interest in continuing to learn coding. Now, this is what we think is biggest win of Hour of Code activity. It exposes children to an exciting new world of technology and development.

Insight 4 – 58% showed interest to explore technology and software development as a career option. Now this is big, imagine the quality of work force we would have in this country and competitive edge this will give to Indian companies at global level.

The best part of the activity for us is that most of the students did coding for the first time in their lives and majority of them were motivated enough to explore coding further down the line. One day hopefully some of these kids would be running big tech companies of the world. And when they would reflect back they would remember goCODR introduced them to coding.

Our promise is not to convert kids in to founders of billion dollar companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google or Facebook. Our promise is to introduce kids to coding and make them fall in love it and improving their logical reasoning, creativity, critical thinking, math skills. goCODR can help kids can become good coders at young age and then choose their own paths and carve their own destiny as they grow.

Write to us at if you want to learn more or want to organise “The Hour of Code” in your school, it’s free of cost. The Hour of Code is free cost online coding class for kids.

Castleton University to Boost International Enrollment with MSM Partnership

Castleton University has struck a partnership with international education provider M Square Media (MSM) as it steps up its efforts to increase its international student enrollment.

Founded in 1787, Castleton University is Vermont’s first institution of higher education and the 18th oldest institution of higher education in the United States. Touted as having the longest history of service to Vermont and Vermonters of any college in the state, Castleton University currently has around 2,400 full-time and part-time students, currently representing 19 countries.

Bringing the World’s Learners to Vermont

With the new partnership, MSM will serve as Castleton University’s Global Marketing Office, which will help the institution shore up its efforts to reach out and recruit students from all around the world.

MSM is an established leader in the industry, building industry-acclaimed global and in-country offices for higher education institutions (HEIs) in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, and other key markets. It is also affiliated with over 4,500 education agents around the globe. 

“We decided to partner with MSM because of the level of professionalism and success they have with international recruiting,” noted Maurice Ouimet, Dean of Enrollment at Castleton University. “We hope to increase the number of international students on our campus over the next few years and with MSM’s model, we are confident we can increase our international student population.” 

Castleton University offers 75 programs of study and eight graduate programs. Its most popular programs include Athletic Training, Business, Criminal Justice, Nursing, Psychology, and Sport Management. 

The university was recently selected as a College of Distinction for 2020-21 for its commitment to quality education and its undergraduate students. The university also received additional marks of distinction in four areas: business, education, nursing, and career development.

Learning and Inclusiveness

Castleton University offers international students an environment conducive to learning, participation, and inclusiveness. “Students are given the chance to grow and become who they want to be; it’s a transformative experience,” Ouimet said. “Our faculty members provide a relationship-based learning environment where they care about the students and are committed to their learning.”

Castleton’s culture will make students quickly feel like they are home, Ouimet added. With a sprawling 165-acre campus, the university can accommodate around 1,000 students to live in its 11 residence halls.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the university transitioned to online learning in March 2020. Its faculty and Academic Support Center also started to move their services to virtual formats available to keep connected with students. Castleton hopes to transition to partial face-to-face delivery in the spring semester of 2021 and resume normal operations beginning in the fall of next year. 

MSM’s global and in-country office model currently serves around 40 partner institutions and includes managing agent networks to free up its partners’ time and resources for strategic and value-adding initiatives. 

“This partnership is a step for Castleton University to further open its doors to more students from all around the world. We are confident that with our expertise in recruiting students from different student markets, we can help our new partner in its initiative to diversify its campus further even in the current environment,” said MSM CEO and Founder Sanjay Laul

MSM was a finalist in the PIEoneer of the Year category of the prestigious PIEoneer Awards 2020. The annual award is organized by The PIE, an independent media, recruitment, and events website in international education that connects its global community of professionals.

New Book by Don Tassone: New Twists

ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to offer the latest work by Don Tassone New Twists hitting stores everywhere now.

The 20 stories featured in this collection are based on abiding themes but with new twists, stories that explore old ideas in today’s world. What does tolerance look like, for example, at a time of such great divisiveness? Fifteen of these stories are longer. Five are very short. All are an invitation to think anew.

Don Tassone’s thoughtful new collection of wide-ranging stories delves into the connections made throughout our lives—from the perils of teenage angst to the precariousness of life at the top of the corporate world. Communications play a huge part—by iPhone, executive phone, in heartfelt handwritten letters, and even when the characters find themselves off the grid. Tassone knows whereof he speaks, and the “New Twists” ring true! – Mary Ann Presman, author of The Good Dishes

With authority and compassion, Don Tassone brings his characters to life on the page and makes us care about them—whether a teenage Mexican immigrant who resents his hard-working father or a hardboiled executive prepared to fire her mentor. You find yourself pulling for these characters as they reach small epiphanies or suffer shattering disappointments and loss. – John Young, author of When the Coin is in the Air

After a long career in the corporate world, Don Tassone has returned to his creative writing roots. New Twists is his fifth book. The others are Drive, a novel, and three other short story collections: Sampler, Small Bites and Get Back. Don and his wife Liz live in Loveland, Ohio. They have four children.
