Using GitHub Classroom IDE integrations

GitHub Classroom Online IDE integrations can automatically configure student repositories with either Microsoft MakeCode Arcade or Repl.it.

Students will be provided a button at the top of their README that sends them to the IDE. The IDE will be fully setup without any additional steps required from your students.

How it works

  1. Select an Online IDE during assignment creation. We currently integrate with Microsoft MakeCode Arcade and Repl.it

  2. When students accept their assignment, they will see a button at the top of their README linking to the selected IDE.

  3. Students will be prompted to sign in via GitHub OAuth. This will automatically link their assignment to the IDE.

  4. Students submit their assignment in the IDE using a graphical GitHub Integration in the IDE.

  5. You can run the student code in the IDE using a button on your assignment dashboard.
