I haven't tried it with students yet, but I went through the first set of exercises myself, and they seem pretty good. I'm not sure how well codeacademy would work without teacher involvement, though, because in order to advance to the next step, each step has to be done exactly so, and I can see some places where students could get confused.

Has anyone used this with students to teach programming?  Other options besides w3schools?
