Junior Coding Club

What to expect in the Junior Coding Club?

Membership has been granted automatically, if your child participates in a Digitaltutor Coding Club at your local school.

About the student account

Your child’s Junior Coding Club username is basically an email address composed by the first name of your child separated with a dot “.” and the first letter of the last name followed by “@codingclub.cc”.

Example: simon.b@codingclub.cc

It is a fully functional email address which is also the single sign-on (SSO) into the Microsoft Office 365 student account and other education applications.

The (secure) password

Every student starts with a generic password. The students are obliged to change their password as soon as possible with their own creation.

First login to the Junior Coding Club

For the login page, click here: https://login.microsoft.com/

Type in the username / email address and you will recognise the Digitaltutor Coding Club welcome screen.

Now fill in the password.

Office 365 Education dashboard

Edit the student account

Beneath the app tiles of the Office 365 dashboard are files, folders, groups and sites the students are working on.

To edit personal student related information, click in the top right corner on the students user name.

Changing the password

This is one of the first topics children should learn: The use of passwords and why they are important. We decided to require a strong policy about passwords even if this is a steep learning challenge for the young students. With the help of the Tutor or with the parents, children will be able to construct a secure password on a high standard soon. 

Psst ... the password must contain at least 8 characters and 3 combinations of the following: capital and lowercase letters, numbers, or special characters (§$%&...) .

Hacky Hack

Train yourself to remember at least one password that you never, repeat: NEVER ever tell someone except your parents.

Recommended password generators:

Change profile information

Profil information are only visible to other members of the Junior Coding Club. Add information about yourself cautiously and especially if it is relevant for your class mates. 

In the My Office Profile page you can add (and edit):

Setup email forwarder (for parents)

The student email address is only visible to other members of the Junior Coding Club.

Emails will be used sparingly within the Coding Club. Much of the digital communication will flow in the classroom chat channels.  

Nonetheless it is advised to setup a forwarder from the student’s Outlook email account to a parents email address. So whenever an email is send to the student, parents will get notified and mailed a copy.

Parent email addresses will not be visible to other members.

Access the Junior Coding Club in Microsoft Teams

While Office 365 Education is the building of the Junior Coding Club, the rooms inside are in Microsoft Teams, the perfect application for this purpose.

The Coding Club classrooms and the school hall are inside Microsoft Teams. This is where students in classrooms and projects interact socially, have fun and work together.

b) Download and install Microsoft Teams

Direct access to classroom

I know what to do. I have the Junior Coding Club student account and password.
Members only

Setup a forwarding email address so if an email will be send to your child’s email address it will be forwarded to a parent’s email as well.

Install Minecraft Education Edition and other education apps

This will be done in Microsoft Teams
