Educational tools are there for a long time but tools like COBL takes it a step ahead towards the innovative learning ideas for young pupils. The education tool launched by COBL which is a company based in South Korea. The organization works towards developing a better and affordable solution for software education. The coding block is their first product that is the end product of hard work with the collaboration of SW education and HW/SW development.cobl coding block

 

Coding Block consists a lego style main board and various type of input and output components which can be clubbed together and coded to work in the desired way. Also, a different type of detachable modules will allow the user to build a basic robot out of COBL. The good thing is it can be programmed with the visual coding tool COBL scratch that is based on MIT Scratch. It is a software that makes it really easy for kids to code.

Unlike convention programming language which relies on written code, MIT scratch used graphical programming. It enables the user to use drag and drop feature in order to build a basic program that could be used to run the Coding Block.
