The tutorial has two tasks:
- Sign up for a free Khan Academy account
- Work through the 18 lessons in the Unit: Intro to JS: Drawing & Animation
Tutorial: Task 1 of 2
Sign up for a free Khan Academy account (this will allow you to save your progress throughout the lesson)
- Click here to go to the Khan Academy sign up page, keep “Learner” selected and enter your date of birth.
You DO NOT need a class code.
The sign up page will look like this:
- Once you enter your birthday you’ll have the option to sign in using a google, facebook, or apple account, or you can select Sign Up with Email if you don’t have any of those types of account or don’t want to use them.

NOTE: If you sign up with an email you’ll need to create a password. If you sign up with your google, facebook, or apple account, follow the instructions in the pop up login window.
Tutorial: Task 2 of 2
Work through the 18 lessons. See the screenshots below for help in finding your way around the Khan Academy site and lessons.
- After signing up, you’ll be redirected to the unit menu on Intro to JS: Drawing & Animation.
It should look like this:
- The 18 lessons are provided in the unit menu on the left (area circled in orange):
- All the lesson details are listed on the right side.
- Work your way through each item within each lesson. Example: The first lesson, “Intro to programming”, has two items: a “talk-through”/video titled “What is Programming?” and an item to read titled “Learning programming on Khan Academy”
- The icon next to the item will tell you what it is:
- Click on a lesson item to access it. Example: when you click on the video “What is programming?” this screen appears:
When you’re in a lesson item (see below), you can:
- get back to the main unit menu by clicking on the lesson title (underlined in orange),
- get to the next lesson item by clicking on it in the lesson menu (lesson items have an orange dot to the left)
NOTE: You can re-watch/read/practice any of the lesson items as many times as you want.
- access a transcript of the video, if the lesson item is a video (circled in orange)
NOTE: For lesson project items, they also have a tab (like transcript) called “Documentation” which will let you reference how code needs to be written for it to work.
