Beta-testing program 

The EDU version of Ylands came to life thanks to the cooperation with educators. We have opened new seats in the beta testing program, which is now public. Your feedback will help us focus on what really matters and build you an engaging tool for teaching coding. Additionally, by signing up for the beta testing you will get the following: 

  • Free licenses for your institution and students

  • Methodology and documentation for Editor 

  • Support for educators and schools

  • Training and webinars  

  • Access to resources and lesson plan library

Students will love learning to code with Ylands EDU

User-friendly Editor for visual and text scripts that resembles the JavaScript language and logic.

Test code with instant gameplay

Progress and changes can be tested in an instant compilation that runs the game and the code within.
