The expanded partnership between Code.org and Pluralsight will give students more opportunities to learn computer science.

Today, we’re excited to announce Pluralsight and Code.org have expanded our partnership in support of our mission to provide more students the opportunity to learn computer science. Code.org Computer Science Principles students will now be offered free access to premium computer science courses on Pluralsight’s learning platform through the social enterprise Pluralsight One. Also as part of the partnership, the Pluralsight One fund is awarding Code.org $1.5 million to expand and strengthen computer science education all over the world.

Code.org CS Principles teachers will provide their students access to curated intermediate and advanced computing courses through Pluralsight One. While Code.org’s course provides a foundational introduction to a breadth of computer science topics, Pluralsight One will offer courses that delve more deeply into vocational topics, giving students a path for continued learning from world-renowned experts. Because of Code.org’s diverse student population in lower-income neighborhoods, this partnership enables Pluralsight to give free access to premium courses that these students may not otherwise be able to afford, creating opportunity for youth who need it the most.

The $1.5 million in new funding — to be dispersed over three years — will help Code.org to invest in programs to reach even more students worldwide, such as providing translations into multiple new languages, enabling offline access, and expanding global partnerships. Pluralsight will continue to partner with Code.org on joint advocacy efforts locally to help establish state policies that will increase opportunities for students to study computer science.

We are grateful for corporate partners like Pluralsight who share a passion for our mission and work with us on multiple levels to realize our vision. We look forward to making a big impact on the futures of students around the world.
