Tell me about Narration on Grok

The situation regarding COVID-19 is constantly changing. We are very aware of the impact this situation will have on student learning. Grok Learning and our partner, the Australian Computing Academy,  are taking rapid steps to support teachers, parents, and students. 
One of the features we are working on is adding more narration to our courses. 

Slide narration is a feature introduced for the NCSS Challenge Newbies stream and is being extended to more and more courses. We know that sometimes students have trouble with coding, not because of their coding skills, but by their reading comprehension. Narration aims to help with this!

Why do we have narration? 

Having audio narration of our slides and problems allows students to listen to the instructions and content as well as read it. This makes it easier for students to understand what we are showing and asking them to do! Especially in the more junior years, where reading comprehension is still developing, we find this really helps students come to grips with coding. 

How can I find courses with narration?

You can use the filters on the Launchpad to find all our courses with narration. Or click here to go straight to a list of all narrated courses. We'll be adding more as time goes on.  

Narration buttons appear on slides and on problems. Students can click the narration button to hear the information read out.
