강좌 소개

This course is an introduction to computer science and programming in Python. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to: 1. Take a new computational problem and develop a plan to solve it through problem understanding and decomposition. 2. Follow a design creation process that includes specifications, algorithms, and testing. 3. Code, test, and debug a program in Python, based on your design. Important computer science concepts such as problem solving (computational thinking), problem decomposition, algorithms, abstraction, and software quality are emphasized throughout. The Python programming language and video games are used to demonstrate computer science concepts in a concrete and fun manner. However, a learner can take the knowledge and skills from this course and apply them to non-game problems, other programming languages, and other computer science courses. You do not need any previous programming, Python, or video game experience. However, some computer skills (e.g., mouse, keyboard, document editing), knowledge of algebra, attention to detail (as with many technical subjects), and a “just give it a try” spirit will be keys to your success. Despite the use of video games for all the programming examples, PVG is not about computer games. PVG will still provide valuable knowledge and skills for non-game computational problems. The interactive learning objects (ILO) of the course provide automatic, context-specific guidance and feedback, like a virtual teaching assistant, as you develop problem descriptions, algorithms, and functional test plans. The course forums will be supported by the creators of the course, to help you succeed. All videos, assessments, and ILOs are available free of charge. There is an optional certificate available for a fee....

excellent course. The syntax analysis was rather hard at times but it gave a more systematic approach to programming. What gained over programming skills is actually efficiency in programming.

This course helps a lot in understanding the algorithms of programming. Moreover, the way of learning is helpful to understand other languages other than python.

I really liked the program. I knew python before starting this course and I could program in it but I always lacked confidence that I might not know some basics. so I started this course to make sure that I have covered all the basic python rules. I am really happy that I did start this program because it deepened my python programming skills and knowledge in addition to computer science basics and it showed me how much I don't know and I need to learn a lot.

Many thanks to the instructional team for offering the course in such a structured way. The details of the design processes and problem-based approach really helped a lot to learn the ins and outs of Python programming without which a solid understanding of the programming would not be possible for me, I believe. Now I am confident that I can dive now more into areas of software engineering/programming. Thanks again to the awesome team.

the material is delivered by great and experienced presenters, the material presented is clear and easy to understand, the material presented also uses good visualization so that it helps to understand. The quiz given is also not too difficult, the reading given is also clear and the core material can be understood, unfortunately there is no translation for Indonesian

It is a challenging course, but at the same time it allows you to learn a lot about the python language and how to develop a project from scratch. I really liked the methodology of practices, trial and error. I simply recommend this course for all levels from a beginning programmer to an intermediate and advanced programmers.

I had a lot of fun in this course. The videos were very clear and easy to understand and the quizzes were helpful in clarifying the concepts further. I loved the programming quizzes, and I normally hate problem-solving questions. Kudos to the team behind this course. I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

I enjoyed the course. It's not so easy for beginners but it's not impossible. The professors don't take a long time to answer our questions and this is really good. I think there are too many semantic and syntactic quizzes. They could change that in my opinion. Anyway, it's a good course!

This course provides an understanding of computer science, especially python programming. In addition, this course also studies PVG or python video games, where python and video games are used to demonstrate computer science with more fun concepts, so learning is not boring but more fun.

This is a fantastic introduction to python that goes into the grammatical details (lexical, syntactic, and semantic) in a way that no programming course that I have taken has done. You will emerge with both a deep understanding of python and a good foundation in programming practice.

Very thorough and detailed explanations for the modules that are a part of the course. Learnt a lot about basics, classes, functions, window displays and foundations to build a gamr using py. The faculty also replied quickly and in a precise manner which helps in solving doubts.

Easy to follow for people at any knowledge level, and still more in-depth to how everything works than my 3 year programming course was.

At times, I found the quizzes expected responses that didn't match the questions, i.e removing the ":" from the end of the line being requested or the word "if" that would have you pulling your hair out, because you KNEW the answer being provided is correct. The best parts of the course (for me) were the coding quizzes that didn't actually involve the hacking game or poke the dots, because the code was essentially being built from scratch. In the case of the game files, we were using a pre-built module and getting help via videos to a point where I did not feel like it was ME who completed the task. There's an overabundance of syntax and semantic diagram quizzes to a point of feeling overwhelmed by typing text diagrams rather than exposure to typing out and interacting with code that exemplified the lesson being taught. Relatively complicated concepts in object oriented programming (OOP) were more or less glossed over in what felt like a hurry by focusing on name spaces, etc. rather than a more humanistic explanation of why I would want to use OOP over functional programming. OOP is not necessary more readable than functional programming and seems to result in a greater number of side effects to keep in mind. I am just a beginner, but found myself performing the tasks.. getting the OOP code to work relatively easily yet still having this odd feeling as though I didn't understand my own code on the same level that I did with functional programming. It was also a bit odd to skip over dictionaries and slicing entirely before jumping right into OOP. You WILL learn a fair bit from this course, but it seems to fall a little bit short on providing uses for args and Kwargs which would be great considering how many directions python can go in and how vital it is to confidently understand args and kwargs.

I liked the programming parts and of the explanations. The Quizes were mostly tedius and for my opinion to theoretical. More programming would have been much better than writing down <fc <ae or trieng to get through the editors for testplans and algorythms.

But maybe thats just me :-)

BUt i learned a lot in this course so everythings fine :)

Awful. Pointless semantic analysis exercises and hardly any actual Python programming. Very disappointed.

Mostly irrelevant stuff. Very little of actual programming.
