Global Campus now available for Teachers

Big news for computer science teachers! Today, we invite teachers to join GitHub Global Campus, the new home for all computer science teachers at GitHub! On Global Campus, teachers can access education resources and learn about new programs and events-all in one place! Teachers can also:

  • Upgrade their GitHub organizations to GitHub Team.
  • Connect with the teacher community on GitHub Discussions.
  • Request swag for their classroom.

Big news for computer science (CS) teachers. GitHub verified teachers using GitHub Classroom get access to GitHub’s groundbreaking, browser-based IDE, Codespaces. It’s a seismic shift for CS education, breaking down barriers in a fundamentally new way. Whether you’re a teacher frustrated with the complexities of managing local machine-based developer environments, tired of troubleshooting your students’ tools rather than focusing on their code, or looking to reduce technical and cost barriers for your CS Classroom, Codespaces addresses so many of the pain points in CS education with one elegant solution – integration in GitHub Classroom.

You can enable Codespaces in GitHub Classroom and then choose it as the preferred editor when creating assignments.


These changes will gradually roll out over the next week. For more information on how to use this new experience, check out our documentation and blog. Your feedback is welcome at our Education Community Forum.
