Introduction to Computing using Python | GTx on edX | Course About Video


DAVID JOYNER: Hi, my name is David
Joyner, and welcome to Introduction to Computing. Now we know there are
a lot of places online where you can learn how to
program, in this class though we want to teach you more than just
how to write computer programs. We want to teach you how to communicate
in a community that uses programming as its language. In this course, you’ll watch
a series of short videos from me rapidly interspersed
with interactive exercises so you can constantly
evaluate your understanding. You’ll also have access
to an Adaptive SmartBook from Mcgraw-Hill Education which is
built to be congruent to this lecture material. So you can switch back
and forth and learn in whatever way works best for you. Teaching this course has been a dream
of mine and I am so excited to get started. So I hope you’ll join me on
this Introduction to Computing.
