Commenting to programs

Dear Coders/Educators,

Now you can comment on the programs you like or have an idea how to improve.
Please try the new commenting feature and let the program creators know your opinion.
We do think one of the best ways to learn is from each other, so try it on.

Greetings,

Bug fix

showturtle (st), hideturtle(ht) commands

New command

Include command (beta)

We are happy to announce that Turtle Academy will now support the include command (for now only in English).

The command structure is include (e.g include 8080). When we include a program, we actually import all of our defined functions (TO commands) from this program. This is a really powerful tool which enables us to define a function once and use it everywhere.

De Turtle Academy ondersteund het registratie proces nu in het chinees. Wat zijn de voordelen van registratie? 1) Meerdere werkplekken - je kan inloggen vanaf een andere computer en je voortgaan wordt bewaard 2) Geleerde opdrachten worden automatisch uitgevoerd als je inlogt - Heb je de schildpad een opdracht aangeleerd? Niet nodig om hem opnieuw aan te leren. 3) Sommige lessen zijn allen beschikbaar voor geregistreerde gebruikers
