Learn to think like IT engineers and work in teams without teachers

There are no teachers on campus. Students learn and code together, and then grade the completed work of each other. Together, we are better at solving difficult challenges. When stuck, students can seek help from curators.

Attend lectures and workshops led by experts

Attend lectures and workshops led by experts

Partners of ucode come to the academy and deliver lectures. For example, the founder of Ajax Systems giving a lecture on how to earn money as a beginner programmer; an anti-hacker from cyber police talking about privacy and protection of personal data; or a neurobiologist explaining how to train your brain to think better. Lectures are great for personal growth and for solving complicated tasks.

We teach like Apple

ucode learning program applies Challenge Based Learning (CBL) methodology that is being used to train the developers for iPhone, Mac, iOS, AppStore etc.

Students both learn, and teach

Students both learn, and teach

When peers explain the material to each other, it helps both of them to understand and write better code. It helps to practice communication skills, and, also, if you’re explaining something, you’re learning that topic more profoundly yourself.

Mistakes are good

Mistakes are good

They help the student to maintain interest in a subject, and to not be afraid to make independent decisions.

Focus on one task at a time

Focus on one task at a time

This helps maintain attention on the problem at hand and to understand how to develop a solution.

Automatic diary

Automatic diary

All actions of the student in the learning program are documented. This helps to analyze and reflect on the result: what went well, and what needs more work.

From simple to complex

From simple to complex

The student will never get lost in the program. The learning process is smooth and the coding skills gradually improve if the tasks are completed on time. At first, it’s just the basics of programming. The further the student goes in the program, the more complex and exciting the tasks become.

Use of technology

Use of technology

The student will have to present results to colleagues, research topics on the internet, gather teams, etc. For this purpose, the student will learn to use modern technological tools.

Programmers at ITernal and AJAX believe that CBL works more effectively than regular lectures, seminars and coding training resources.

Gamification -
learning process as a game

The student levels up a virtual profile, gains experience for completed tasks, increases knowledge and coding skills.

Peer-to-Peer mechanics

Tasks are assessed by peers that are on the same or higher level in learning. The assessments are made using video calls or in person on campus. Who and when will be the assessor is calculated by the LMS system.

Project defense

Student teams always make presentations of their projects. This happens within internal events on campus. The results are assessed by other teams and partners of ucode.

Knowledge assessment by a robot

The program Oracle assesses the code submitted by students. Such an assessment is impartial, doesn’t make mistakes or deals, and grades objectively. Oracle hints at what is wrong with the code.

Survival marathon

During the marathon, students get a chance to test the limits of their intellectual abilities and train their brains to think critically and to quickly complete tasks. The complexity of the tasks gradually increases, and time limits become more strict. This way, the students truly improve and grow.
