CoCo is a platform for real-time collaboration based on Scratch 3.0. Its development is led by two PhD students at the Lifelong Kindergarten Group of MIT, Manuj Dhariwal and Shruti Dhariwal. Its intention is to let educators facilitate young people to be creative by being a "shared digital space" in which to make projects.
Inspiration for CoCo began to arise in its creators' minds in February 2019. By 2020, Manuj Dhariwal and Shruti Dhariwal had created a working prototype, and made a Twitter account for CoCo.
On December 8, 2022, Scratch Team member speakvisually tweeted about CoCo. The following day an official Medium blog post was published announcing CoCo and explaining its philosophy.
