CodeGrade's response to COVID-19, free licenses for affected institutions
As of March 2020 more and more educational institutions are forced to move education online as a result of COVID-19 concerns. Consequently, many teachers have to quickly adapt their assessments to online based systems. We are dedicated to help our partners and any affected educational institutions in the process of moving computing education online.
