Project Description

Ocobox is a unique coding-tool that utilises AI/ML to promote ‘productive failure’. Ocobox improves learner confidence with errors and demystifies coding.


The chatbot supports you as you explore, make mistakes, and provides friendly feedback. Ocobox is the blended classroom solution that provides 1 to 1 support, promotes failure and improves resilience when learning to code.


Our tool uses a growth mindset approach to encourage users to experiment without fear of failure. It is a cross platform, uses gender neutral language and is designed for those with low readability scores. Allowing ALL students to have the same learning experience, whether they are in the classroom or at home.


Join us, as we create a future generation of coders that reflects the society we live in.
