Are you interested in COMPUTER SCIENCE, but your not sure how to get the experience, or possibly you can’t find the time to fit in any of the classes made available on or off campus. Try these alternative solutions. If you are looking to get credit towards a degree, please make sure to read each of these sources websites to see if accreditation or certifications is available.
I want to LEARN!
Here we’ve laid out plan to assist all those interested in Computer Programming. This program is focused on the beginner to intermediate student. Below are two of the classes that are must for all computer programming students. CSIS110 and CSIS119.
- CSIS 110 (Introduction to Computing Principles)
– This class covers Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. It is a require course for most degrees and transfers.
- CSIS 119 (Introduction to Computer Programming
– This course teaches students about programming language using PsuedoCode, meaning it teaches the concepts. This past semester 2014, the school started to use Scratch.mit.edu. Scratch is a Drag N’ Drop Block learning system for learning programming.
- After you’ve taken some time to learn Scratch.
- GoTo https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/cs (FREE)
- After you’ve completed the Khan Academy Computer Science Section, take a look at http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp (FREE)
- After w3schools. Head on over to http://www.codecademy.com/learn
- Currently Code Academy is (FREE) for all it’s services, but there is a possibility that it’s future Premium services might come with a fee.
- On the Code Academy Learn page, you will see a Start button. Click this.
All programs I’ve talked about can be found here on this page. This page also contains a few Paid options. We recommend if don’t mind spending a few dollars, try out TeamTreeHouse.com before using Lynda.com for programming.
