    Love the site! Using it to teach an app design & development course and the kids have done some really cool stuff.

    The only issue is my district blocks the site every now and then due to kik messenger. The IT department hasn’t been able to fix the issue. The block will only last for a couple of minutes before the students can begin working again, but this disruption really messes up the flow of the class and often students who were in a groove will become frustrated and give up after a block ..

    Not sure if anyone else is having this issue or not. Please help!

    Hi JBurke!
    Perhaps, it would be useful to use a private server. Do you know how to install your own App Inventor?
    You can build your own server from the MIT sources and not depend on the external connection.

    I asked our lead systems person and he didn’t see why kik would interfere with App Inventor.
