Interactive Tasks

for theory and practice

A structured course flow that builds from easy “fill-in-the code” exercises to more challenging tasks makes for a friendly learner experience. The IDE’s programming tasks feature placeholders to be completed and helpful error messages that appear in the event that something’s not right. Detailed exercise descriptions with code samples, hints, and multiple-choice tasks help learners stay engaged and focused. Educators can easily create such interactive structured courses thanks to YAML support.

Smart Checker

thanks to integrated custom tests

Think your exercise is ready? Click the “Check” button and receive instant feedback on your submission, with hints and error messages for the most common code mistakes. This support is made possible by custom tests that educators can create with the help of unit testing frameworks in order to automatically verify learners’ submissions.

Extensive course-sharing options

for public and private access

Share your knowledge and promote best practices. Share your course publicly on the MOOC platform or privately with your students or co-workers. Learners getting started with IntelliJ IDEA Edu can access all publicly featured courses. So don’t hesitate to spread your knowledge!

Professional Environment

Productivity features, such as smart code completion, code inspections, a visual debugger, and more, not only boost your learning productivity, but also make it easy to switch easily and seamlessly to other JetBrains tools.

Enjoy a fine–tuned workspace

Feel more at home with your IDE and help yourself stay focused and avoid distraction, with customizable color and keyboard shortcut schemes, and all the look-and-feel settings you need for productive development.

Learn faster with a smart editor

Take advantage of language-specific syntax and error highlighting to help you avoid code mistakes. Learn how to style your code correctly with code formatting, and don't ever get stuck thanks to code completion and quick documentation.

Run & debug your code

Run your code to be sure everything works properly. Use the powerful debugger with a graphical UI to find out what went wrong — set breakpoints, run your code step by step, and have all the information at your fingertips.
