Changes to CS2N

As some of you may have noticed, CS2N has undergone a bt of change since this past Spring. It is an exciting change that would essentially allow CS2N to expand, and bring more focus on Computer Science and STEM related content. Due to this shift, CS2N has adopted a change in name, now known as CS-STEM.

As with these changes, it also brought forward many suggestions from our users, with many great additions. We want to use this new found collaboration, and with that said, CS-STEM will begin publishing a list of changes moving forward.

Here are most notable recent changes

• Added ability to generate password or set password using the spreadsheet template file when generating student accounts for groups

• Added icons for Group Activities to allow for easier navigation


• Added Blogs to the header

• Improved handling for student account generation
• Improved filtering when viewing courses, RVWs, and others

• Updated CS2N Learn ( to match CS-STEM Network theme


• Updated to student account generation to allow special characters in names (i.e. Mary Elizabeth Smith, Chris O'Reilly)
• Fixed accordion style containers to work properly
• Fixed rare crash when generating student accounts
• Fixed certificate QR code broken link

Starting a elementary STEM club, have 40 students signed up, what is best way to introduce to the Vex virtual world.I do have 6 seats so sharing is going to part of it. Is there a way that all of them can learn just the basics and then hope to get a few who want to take it to the next level.

I use this course as the backbone for my Middle School VEX Robotics Class. It has worked out great for the last few years; however, I have a couple of questions about the course. I brought this first one up when we were working with the previous version (ROBOTC for VEX Groups 2013-2014); but the changes in the newer version (ROBOTC for VEX Groups 2015-2016) did not address the issues. Section 11 and 12 quizzes contain questions which do not belong in them. Section 11- Behaviors and Functions has 2 questions relating to the Ultrasonic Rangefinder, while Section 12 – Forward Until Near, has a question relating to finding the threshold value for the line tracking sensors. Is there any way to correct this? The second question relates to the Student Certification Exam. At one point, this exam was separated from the course, which made it possible for the teachers to control who had access to it based, not only on performance on the Practice Quizzes, but also on actual code writing skills demonstrated. Is there any way that the course could be set back to where the Certification Exam is separated? It gave more Validity to the Certificate when it was earned by proof of use of proper coding skills, not just the ability to look up the answers in the notes or videos. Thank you, Omar Rodriguez-Hazan
