Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Designed for upper elementary-age children, this "senior" version of Lightbot presents a collection of programming puzzles that use touch-and-drop commands to solve.

Like the more rudimentary "Junior" level, there are six sets of puzzles, each with nine challenges. Each starts locked, and must be solved in order, sequentially.

Each level asks you to guide a robot to light up tiles and solve levels using commands, introducing procedures, loops, and conditionals. Content consists of 50 levels and 20 challenges, in English, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Romanian, Norweigan, Slovenian and Indonesian; with no in-app purchases.

Lightbot was created in Canada using the OpenFL/Lime framework by a University of Waterloo student, Danny Yaroslavski. The music for Lightbot was created by Andrew Sky. See also Lightbot Jr., Tynker, Hopscotch and Scratch Jr.
