Scratch and Code.org are both good coding websites, but which one is better? Most teachers prefer Code.org, and the students prefer Scratch usually. Code.org's code challenges are quite simple, and teachers want to use it as an introduction to coding. Students like Scratch because they have the freedom to create whatever they want, and not just a Minecraft game, or a flappy bird game.

Code.org detects if you get a step wrong, and they tell you after you run your project. They even have helpful tutorials and more stuff. Though Scratch has tutorials, but they don't notify you. You have to figure out what went wrong yourself.

Scratch's community is really big and anyone can share a project, as long as they have an account. There is an Explore tab and search bar. Code.org has a community, but there is no tabs, and almost impossible to find your project if you shared it a long time ago. There is no search bar.

Scratch has a meme community so we win by default

That's not always a bad thing - it could help teach people how to problem solve.

Scratch is way better. Code.org is for 6 year olds.

Both are bad, you should just be made to use good old QB64

As someone who has been taught both Scratch and Code.org in school, Scratch is MUCH better. Code.org is more logic/problem-solving then actual programming.

How is problem solving not “actual programming”?

I guess what I meant was that Scratch lets you make a project fully on your own (custom sprites, sounds), while Code.org has everything already there. It kind of feels like mini-games to me. I don't think Code.org is terrible, but Scratch is better for people who want to get into game development.
On an unrelated note, I also like the sense of community you get in Scratch. Code.org (at least from what I know) doesn't have follows, loves/favorites, forums, and a massive group of people willing to help you out.

As somebody whose used both code.org and Scratch, I personally prefer Scratch for messing around/having fun and Code.org for more serious projects. I especially enjoy how you can download your projects to your phone on Code.org, something that Scratch doesn't offer. The option to code using text is also cool – and it looks much more impressive when you show it to your friends lol.

Scratch is 9001% better than Code.org.

I agree, we create programs to solve problems like robots for self driving cars.

It is funny how people are still replying to this discussion.

Code.org is too limited. I had fun with it though!
