Code.org and the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) have partnered with Pluralsight, an enterprise technology learning platform, to expand their course offerings. The partnerships will bring specially curated online course libraries to thousands of additional computer science students and teachers. CSTA says its 60,000 members in more than 140 countries could benefit from the agreement.

Pluralsight will provide $1.5 million to Code.org to "deepen opportunities" for female and minority students via new access to computer science education resources. The grant money will be distributed over a three-year period, but Code.org and CSTA will make the course offerings available immediately to students and teachers. Students taking the AP Computer Science Principles exam will now have access to more than 150 courses totaling 500 hours of lessons in four categories: IT/OPs, software development, design/creative, and product management.
