Perfect for remote lectures and providing one-on-one guidance to students, CodeTogether takes the pain out of distance learning. 


From Twitch streaming to coding workshops and conferences, CodeTogether is happy to support innovative ways to learn.


CodeTogether lets you collaborate on your terms—from a Dynamic mode where the current driver is fluid based on activity, to Strong-Style Pairing where the current driver must explicitly grant a new driver, to Presentation mode where only the host can drive and edit files. Presentation mode is a wonderful option for remote learning, allowing the teacher to maintain control of the session, while allowing students the freedom to browse the workspace without disrupting others.

Loved by Teachers and Students Alike

My students have been using CodeTogether this semester to help work at a distance. They have uniformly and overwhelmingly enjoyed the experience. Many of them have Eclipse experience, and have reported being able to do significantly more together using your product than with Eclipse alone. I found it particularly useful when I was locked into an older version of Eclipse.

Both throughout the pandemic and beyond, I see the benefit to be able to collaborate with others live on the same piece of code. CodeTogether has been a nice tool for this as it doesn’t require a specific IDE or for everyone to be on the same IDE, instead allowing everyone to contribute using their own favorite IDE or even a web browser!

Thus far, CodeTogether seems like a great product. I have been using it to present lessons during my computer science class, and it has especially helped when working with my remote students. I am expecting the students will find it helpful when they start their group projects in the coming weeks. We are finding it easy to use and, at the moment, find it excellent as is.

I appreciate the fact that students can use it from a web browser.

—Faculty Member, Hogeschool Leiden

I use CodeTogether every day, for each of my chairs, it is a fundamental tool that allows my students to follow the development of the class without major problems. It really is a great tool for distance teaching in the area of computer science.
