I am a Technology education teacher from NJ and I use Lego Mindstorms for my 8th-grade robotics class. Since we are doing distance learning (teaching from home) my students have not been able to continue their curriculum as the software and robots are at school. Is there a web-based program where the students can code with block-based coding (not scratch) like in the normal downloadable software and run virtual tests of their code? Kind of like the virtual brick or virtual world software you can purchase but a web-based version so my students can still learn how and explore Mindstorms like we would in the classroom. Any suggestions?
Here's Microsoft Makecode. It is full of tutorials for the EV3, such as:
• Example programs
• How certain sensors work
• How certain code blocks work
• Instructions for EV3 robots
• And much more.
Is this what you're looking for?
There is a program called Robot Virtual Worlds: http://www.robotvirtualworlds.com/
... but it is a downloaded program vs. web based. You might be able to use a remote desktop sharing program (VNC, Skype, Zoom, MS Teams, Team Center, etc.) to access remotely, or contact them if they're considering a "cloud hosted" option.
They do offer a free trial, so you can always experiment to see if it works at all for you.
Perhaps you should try CoderZ. I think that it would fill your requirements. An online coding environment where you can also see the robots virtually move as they have been programmed. I have never actually used this before but I think that you should have a look at it. Happy Programming.
