SAN MATEO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Roblox, a global online platform bringing more than 120 million people together through play, announced today a set of free remote learning Roblox Education initiatives to support educators and parents, and help kids and teens continue to learn and explore remotely.

Game Design & Coding Resources

The new Teaching Remotely resource includes over 100 hours of free, ISTE certified content that can be used to teach game design and coding fundamentals in remote learning environments.

More in-depth tutorials on coding, game development, and design are also available for those looking to create immersive environments from scratch.
