Hi, I was wondering if online programming sites could be used for teaching programming as well...

As an example, together with a group of friends, I'm the author of a site called sketchPatch, , which allows users to program in Processing without requiring any installation, just by using their web browser.

We did a couple of workshops here in the UK, where people pass along programs between themselves, modifying them following some hints given by the workshop leader. I was wondering if there could be any interest in trying this in other contexts where the OLPC is being used?

sketchPatch currently uses flash, but it should work in gnash, as we don't use particular codecs...
