Introducing Tynker’s Tutorial Designer

Introducing Tynker’s Tutorial Designer


It’s now easier than ever to teach programming with our new Tutorial Designer that allows anyone (even students)  to design a lesson for others to follow.  Just start with a project you’ve already created, and you can easily add step-by-step instructions to show someone how to build your project.


Review these sample tutorials

Sign in to Tynker, and you can take a look at sample tutorials created using the Tutorial Designer:

  • Fun with Spirographs – This tutorial explains how to build Spirograph designs with code. At the end of the tutorial, students have additional prompts to experiment.
  • Build an Arcade Game – This tutorial shows you how to build an arcade shooter game.

Tailor lessons to your students!

You can easily add videos, pictures, links, voiceover and step-by-step user actions, to bring your lesson to life and give your students everything they need, accessible from a single convenient place.

Tutorials are saved with the project.  When your students open the project, they see the yellow tutorial tab on the left and will find it easy to follow instructions or review your lesson notes.  For more detailed instructions, click on Tutorial Help from the Tools menu.

Get started building your own lessons in minutes — a great option for doing something special with your students during Hour of Code™ 2014 in December!
