An interactive, graphical coding environment for EarSketch online using Blockly and Web Audio API

Anand Mahadevan, Jason Freeman, Brian Magerko
This paper presents an interactive graphical programming environment for EarSketch, using Blockly and Web Audio API. This visual programming element sidesteps syntactical challenges common to learning text-based languages, thereby targeting a wider range of users in both informal and academic settings. The implementation allows seamless integration with the existing EarSketch web environment, saving block-based code to the cloud as well as exporting it to Python and JavaScript.
