Dodona is an online exercise platform for learning to code. It wants to teach students how to program in the most meaningful and effective way possible. Dodona acts as an online co-teacher, designed to give every student access to high quality education. The focus is on automatic corrections and giving meaningful feedback on the submitted solutions from students.

Dodona is free to use for schools and thanks to your support, we would like to keep it that way! Keeping this platform up and running takes a lot of time, just as supporting hundreds of schools and thousands of students. Your support would go entirely to personnel (e.g., paid internships) that help developing new features and supporting users.
