about us

Vocareum <codeLMS> is the first Learning Management System (LMS) built specifically for teaching students to code. We greatly simplify and bring the experience of managing coding assignments to the web browsers of teachers worldwide.


With the exploding demand for computer science education, teachers are faced with a challenge to teach at an unprecedented scale to meet that demand. While there are products in place to give self learners anytime and anywhere access to top-notch classes, Vocareum is focused on helping teacher-led classes scale. We believe we can provide scale by building a focused next-generation Learning Management System (LMS). Initially by building an LMS focused on coding, we are able to leverage cloud and mobility to get scale that was not otherwise possible.

Understanding that teachers have limited support, which is amplified with scale, the Vocareum makes teachers’ lives easier by providing:

  • Easy assignment setup and submission
  • Ability to monitor student progress and providing in-context communication
  • Complete visibility and analytics along with grading automation and plagiarism detection
  • Seamless integration to existing learning infrastructure through LTI, LMS APIs and CSV files
  • Tight links to virtual labs

Vocareum significantly reduces the time and cost associated with setting up and managing coding assignments.

  • EDSURGE | Insights and Trends that Make MOOCs Matter

    One can argue that MOOC-mania peaked in 2012, which The New York Times famously called “The Year of the MOOC.” Variants of the word “disruption” appeared three times in that article, portending a momentous transformation in how students learn and how teachers teach. A year later, the The New York Times acknowledged setbacks. That early results did not live up to lofty expectations were perhaps not so surprising. High-profile, humbling lessons from initial pilots like those at San Jose State University led many to curb their enthusiasm.


  • INSTRUCTIONAL TECH TALK | 021 - Coding in the Classroom with Vocareum

    Coding has become a very exciting and worthy tool with which to teach – mostly because it teaches incredible skills while also teaching a very valuable tool for life beyond K-12 education. Until recently, teaching coding meant special software loaded on specific computers in order for students and teachers to write, compile, and execute code to ensure programs are written correctly. Because of the special requirements, it became difficult for students to work on coding assignments outside of class as the compiler software isn’t always the easiest.



  • NCCE | First Look: Vocareum

    Next up in our First Look series is Vocareum. Vocareum is a cloud based service that lets students learn to program in Android, Java, Hadoop, MySQL, Node.js, Python, D3.js and more. The key piece here is allowing this to happen through the cloud. Any middle or high school that offers programing understands that hardware and software setup can be a major obstacle in offering this coursework. Vocareum is removing that barrier by moving everything to the cloud.



“For a few years I have been looking for a solution for my students to turn in code online. A simple solution that would allow me to assign and/or access an assignment, run and review code, give feedback and grade in one place. This year I was super excited to start the new year because I discovered Vocareum. Vocareum has quickly become my platform of choice for my AP Computer Science class assignments. The best part about the platform is that we were up and running very soon after the first day of school started. Plus, the students quickly picked up on how to use and turn in their assignments. I am also very impressed with the Vocareum team. They are always available to help and are truly a phenomenal group. Their engagement in ensuring that my students have a good learning experience is one of a kind. In fact, it has actually been a source of great excitement for my students to be able to directly interact with a silicon valley start-up. I am currently using the platform for authoring, executing and grading my student assignments. I have to also add that their platform has transformed the way teaching and learning occurs in my Computer Science classroom.”

-Alexandra Vlachakis, AP CS Teacher, Sandy Creek High School

“As a new AP Computer Science teacher kick starting Computer Science Program at our high school, I started using Vocareum since the beginning of my course this year. With a large class of 32 students and with less than an hour of instruction a day, Vocareum allows me to access my students java code, compile errors, run time errors, standard input and output anytime any where. I love that feature! Immediately, I can see students progress and see which students need my assistance. As a former software engineer and current educator who has previously piloted other educational platforms, I have to say that Vocareum is user friendly for both teachers and students. We use Vocareum daily. The Vocareum Team is very professional and understands the needs of its users. Through user input and collaboration, Vocareum continues to make Vocareum the best icloud learning for students. Vocareum is certainly a big player in giving more students access to learning to code, a very necessary and desired skill for the 21st Century.”
