Coding Lab Home Based Learning

The option to learn from the comfort of your home is now available with the launch of our HOME-BASED E-LEARNING programme.

Our complete e-learning solution includes live video conferences with our tutors, online questions, video-on-demand and everything you need to fully understand the material. Lesson materials and notes can also be mailed to your home directly.

Harnessing the same technology and teaching strategies that clinched our Japan-Singapore team the Best Coding Award at the Microsoft Minecraft Cup competition, ALL students can now benefit from the availability of our E-Learning Classes. Continue to code games and animations*, design apps or pick up Python  – all from the comfort of home.

*Students aged 9 and below require parent/guardian(s) accompaniment for all e-learning classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an age limit for the Home-Based E-Learning?
We offer home-based e-learning to students aged 7 – 18. For children aged 7 to 9, we require a parent or guardian’s accompaniment throughout the E-Learning class as we believe that they could potentially require more support and guidance.

Unfortunately, we do not offer Home-Based E-Learning classes to children aged 4 to 6.

How do HBL classes differ from Physical classes?

For all HBL classes, the material covered, curriculum and lesson duration remain unchanged.

Our team has worked hard to adapt our award-winning curriculum for HBL to ensure a seamless transition from physical classes to online learning. Measures we’ve taken include:-

  • Investing in specialised professional software and equipment to aid in teaching
  • Reduction of class size ratios for optimum learning
  • Mailing course materials and access to e-notes
  • Complimentary HBL Concierge service to assist you with pre-course set-up and any questions you might have about HBL

We would love to ease you and your child into HBL class smoothly from his/her very first session. Do reach out to us at +65 6528 2282 if you have more questions or need any help.

Are the classes pre-recorded or live?
As our student, you will be granted access to our full suite of HBL resources. Classes will be live-streamed to you via the web conference. Pre-recorded videos-on-demand can also be accessed for you to catch up or revise if you missed out on anything. We also encourage frequent home practice via our online system and course-specific forums, which allow students to submit their code for grading anytime, anywhere and have their questions answered.

I've signed up for Home-Based E-Learning class. Now what? Do I need anything?

Thank you for signing up with us! You can sit back and relax now. As soon as we receive your request, we’ll email you the details and guides as to how you can access your E-Learning classes, as well as what you should do. Our lesson materials and notes can also be mailed directly to your home, just give us a call at +65 6528 2282 or email us at learntocode@codinglab.com.sg if you haven’t yet requested for it.

I'm not sure how to set-up my home devices. How can I get help?

Our HBL Concierge service will be happy to assist you. Simply give us a call at +65 6528 2282 or email us at learntocode@codinglab.com.sg to book a complimentary HBL pre-course briefing and set-up session with us, so that we can guide you and your child through. Our lesson materials and notes can also be mailed directly to your home.

I want to do the App Inventor or Advanced Computer Scientists course(s) on Home-Based E-Learning but I don't have an Android phone at home. What do I do?
Whilst an online emulator is available for download and can be used, we would highly recommend an Android phone for these courses (P201 App Inventor 1, P202 App Inventor 2 and P21S Advanced Computer Scientists). You will be able to use your device across multiple classes in the Ages 10-12 roadmap.

Are the normal physical classes still ongoing?

In line with MOH advisories, centre-based physical classes will be suspended from 27 March 2020 – 4 May 2020. From 27 March 2020, all existing lessons at Coding Lab will automatically be converted to Home-Based Learning (HBL) courses, and all new courses will be offered solely on HBL. We encourage you to reach out to us at +65 6528 2282 or learntocode@codinglab.com.sg if you require assistance to set-this up for your child. Detailed instructions on accessing our full suite of HBL resources will be emailed to you separately.

Can I try out one Home-Based E-Learning class first? I'm not sure if this suits my learning style...
Of course you can! We know that as much as it can be exciting to have classes via a new style, you might also be unsure about it. Sign up for a trial and if you like it after the first class, feel free to continue with the Home-Based E-Learning. Just give us a call at +65 6528 2282 or email us at learntocode@codinglab.com.sg to let us know.
