Harvard edX – CS50X: Introduction to Computer Science

I am always looking for more ways to learn about new technology and ways to engage K-12 students.  Harvard edX did just that with their new course: Introduction to Computer Science.

CS50x is Harvard College’s introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming for majors and non-majors alike, with or without prior programming experience. An entry-level course taught by David J. Malan, CS50x teaches students how to think algorithmically and solve problems efficiently. Topics include abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development. Languages include C, PHP, and JavaScript plus SQL, CSS, and HTML. Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. As of Fall 2013, the on-campus version of CS50x was Harvard’s second-largest course.”

WAYS TO TAKE THIS EDX COURSE:

  1. Audit this Course
  2. Try for a Certificate
  3. Enroll in the CS50 Certificate Option

Introduction to Computer Science will teach you the beginnings of computer programming from the ground up. And its all for FREE!
