A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Play My Code is an online platform powered by html5 for building, playing and distributing browser games. In order to start creating games, one will have to sign up by providing a username, password and a valid e-mail address. In Play My Code, one can play games created by different users by browsing them in the games libraries. To play, one do not need to create an account. However, one would not be able to comment, rate or save the game unless s/he is signed up. In the site, there is also a forum and blog section. This is useful for helping each other when somebody is stuck with a problem. One can also blog about the new game that s/he has created, so that people will know what is it about and whether it interests them or not.
Tim Scratcherd of the School House Partnership had shared some notes for educators to introduce them to Play My Code. The notes consist of a general introduction and guidance plus code samples. These notes could be access from the blog section under the sub title ‘Play my code intro notes for teachers’. They are really useful!
