Learn alongside smart people solving hard problems

Oriole Online Tutorials

Oriole is a unique new medium that blends code, data, text, and video into a narrated learning experience with executable content.

Led by some of the most brilliant minds in technology, each lesson is an easily digestible and engaging thought-by-thought tour of the instructor’s approach to the problem in both narrative and executable code. No set-up or installation is necessary; Oriole Online Tutorials require nothing more than an internet connection and a laptop. You can write and run code within the environment. Make a mistake? Change it, and try again.

Oriole combines the expert insight and hands-on learning of in-person or online courses with the on-demand, at-your-own desk, back-up-and run-it-again convenience of video training. You learn by doing, on your own schedule, and at your own pace.

“In Oriole, we get the complete integration of video synchronized with the flow of the text, as well as the ability to execute the code: this is probably as close as we can get to learning side-by-side with Peter himself”.
