Cant use Construct 2 in class

For educators around the world who use Construct 2 in classrooms

Post » Thu Jul 30, 2015 12:06 pm

Reason is we do web design using HTML5 & CSS and therefore cant use Construct 2 for the programming as same language :(

Oh well back to Python.

I agree Python is difficult. We still use Scratch in class for beginners.

I'm not sure why you would use Python for web design? Typically that involves HTML and CSS, and Python is an unusual choice for that...

Sorry you misunderstood. We use HTML5 to design web pages as you say. But we wanted to use Construct 2 for the programming assessment. But we couldn't do that as we already teach HTML5. I hope that makes sense =)

Why would you want to do that with Construct 2, with using it to assess the code of HTLM5 designed webpages? You obviously didn't look at the program's usage or what it's intended for, but that may just be your instructor's fault for not knowing what it was intended for. It's like attempting to use paint to write a 10 page word document. You probably could, but it's going to be difficult and you're not going to be utilizing the program for what it was intended for.

I'm not trolling you.

I'm just confused and don't understand why you want to use this program for a different purpose than it's intended one, especially when it has absolutely no native support for said purpose, otherwise. It clearly says on the front landing page of Scirra's website that it's intended for video game making.

What I meant is about the program's intended usage, and I'm just questioning why you would want to use it to assess code for websites designed in HTML5 and CSS. Your first post in this topic made you seem maybe just a little confused? Yes, it primarily exports in HTML5 (as Joannesalfa pointed out, it's usage is for HTML5 Canvas only) but it's strictly meant generally to design video games. It has no native capability to function as a tool to design and check markup for web design. You very possibly could do that, but you would have to make event systems completely from scratch to understand syntax completely, it's not intuitive and is lots of unneeded frustration.
