This course is designed to help students with very little or no computing background, learn the basics of building simple interactive applications. Python is an easy-to learn, high-level computer language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera. To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple.
The primary method for learning the course material will be to work through multiple “mini-projects” in Python.
This class is nine weeks long. For most weeks, you will watch two sets of videos (part A and part B) and then complete one quiz for each set. These quizzes have a soft deadline of Tuesday/Thursday, respectively, and a hard deadline of Saturday. The main task for each week is to complete a mini-project that is due on Saturday. You will then be asked to assess your peer’s mini-projects on the following Sunday-Wednesday.
Duration:- 5 weeks
7-10 hours per week
Part Time/Full Time: – Part Time
Course start date – Contact Institute
Knowledge of high school mathematics is required. While the class is designed for students with no prior programming experience, some beginning programmers have viewed the class as being fast-paced. For students interested in some light preparation prior to the start of class, we recommend a self-paced Python learning
