Why Do Teachers Prefer EduBolt?

It is powerful, yet easy to use
  • Add your class, assignments and students, from CSV/Excel import, or one at a time.
  • Students securely log in and upload their files for each assignment, by web or FTP.
  • Mark assignments complete as you view the source code or run the files on our server.
  • We're also FERPA, Student Data Security & PCI DSS compliant.

Code securely on the Microsoft Azure® Cloud

Students create HTML, CSS, JS and PHP files with a syntax highlighting code editor, and will see their files run on a real web server! You can even specify a version of PHP for your class to use.

If you teach MySQL, every student can get access to their own MySQL database.

Students are better prepared for a dream career as a web developer.

Open Letter to All Teachers

Dear Web Design / Web Development Teacher:


My name is Thomas and long ago I graduated from Lewisville High School in Lewisville, Texas. The lessons I learned from Mr. Skiles (my high school Web Development teacher), not only took me to State and National competitions, but showed me a career path.

For over a decade, I worked for companies of all sizes as a Web Developer, Software Architect and VP of Development until I started my own company, VisorCraft. Today, my company builds meaningful solutions to small businesses through custom development, offers CPE courses to teachers and actively tries to better the world around us.

I owe what success I have had to teachers like yourself. I also know firsthand what it's like to face challenges, like a student trying to write JavaScript, HTML and PHP files with no real web server for them to run on. In some cases, the code is only ever manually reviewed by teachers and never gets executed to determine if the code functions as intended. Imagine how far your students could go with a web server they can run code on not only at school, but also from home.

Putting these pieces together, I am pleased to introduce you to EduBolt – a platform for your students to upload their files for your Web courses. Whether its HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, MySQL or simply images, EduBolt is a FERPA compliant solution which will let you and your students see their code run on a real web server. There's nothing to install, and you can use any curriculum you want with EduBolt – you simply add your assignments, and students upload their files.

I would like to thank you for the work you do, teaching students skills that can be a viable career, and invite you to try EduBolt out for 1 month (1 teacher and 5 student accounts).

Please feel free to print out and distribute the Career In Web Development document to your students, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve your classroom soon.

Sincerely,
Thomas Whitecotton
Owner, VisorCraft
