Bellevue College Adds Partner for Coding Ed

Bellevue College has tapped a private partner to help provide continuing education in programming and related technologies.

The college has teamed with Coding Dojo, which will provide curriculum, instructors and access to its platform for courses hosted by Bellevue. The move will make Bellevue the first institution to join Coding Dojo's Coding for Higher Education program, available in and around Seattle, Los Angeles and San Jose.

"Starting this fall, Bellevue College and Coding Dojo will initially offer two new Bellevue College Continuing Education courses for two software stacks used to build websites and web applications — Ruby on Rails and JavaScript/MEAN," according to a news release. "Courses will be a combination of evening and weekends onsite at Bellevue College taught by Coding Dojo instructors with remote support aided by Coding Dojo's online learning platform."

Each course will consist of three modules costing $1,299 each or $3,500 for all three.

"We have always prided ourselves on providing quality programs that are aligned with the needs of our high tech employers," said Mark Veljkov, product manager with Bellevue College Continuing Education, in a prepared statement. "By bringing on full-time Coding Dojo instructors immersed in the evolving tech space, we know we'll be able to arm our students with the most in-demand technologies."
