About the course:

It is never too early for children these days to learn to code. The world of programming does not have to be the intimidating, never-ending wall of text and numbers that we see, and run away from, in our working life. For example, if your child spends any time on the internet to watch videos, access websites for school or play web-games, they have already been exposed to code.

Learning to code has proven to help children improve their creative problem-solving skills and empower them to collaborate and create as they build projects of their own. Coding can be a visual tool for your child to develop a technological understanding of how things work. In this online course, let your child learn the basics of code and experience the joy and satisfaction of coming up with an e-card and their own online mini-game.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Understand the building blocks of the internet
  • The different coding languages for kids: HTML, Javascript, Python. What are they for?
  • Creating your own mini-game with your code of choice

 

Course content

  • 8+ hours of on-demand training and instruction videos
  • Earn a certificate upon completion
  • Flexible and mobile learning mode
  • 100% online course
