Stanford University is happy to announce Code in Place 2021: a free, human-centric, intro-to-coding course in the time of COVID-19 for Students and Teachers.
About the Course
In 2020, at the start of the pandemic, as an act of community service over 900 teachers from around the world came together to offer a first-of-its-kind volunteer-led course called Code in Place, hosted by Stanford University. Code in Place was a great, uplifting, learning experience and over 10,000 students learned how to code in python. It was such a good time they are going to do it again in April 2021.
- Course Dates: April 19th until May 28th.
- Where: Anywhere with internet.
- Who: Learners, with no programming experience, and time to dedicate to learning.
CS106A is one of most popular courses at Stanford University, taken by almost 1,600 students every year. It has been developed over the last 30 years by an amazing team, including Nick Parlante, Eric Roberts and more. The course teaches the fundamentals of computer programming using the widely-used Python programming language. This course is for everyone from humanists, social scientists, to hardcore engineers. Code in Place is built off the first half of CS106A.
Code in Place require no previous background in programming — just a willingness to work hard and a love for learning. It requires considerable dedication and hard work, over a course of 5 weeks.
- Lecture videos every week
- One 50 minute section every week
- Section is a weekly meeting in small groups of around 10 students where you get to have a more personalised learning experience. Sections are lead by our team of section leaders from around the world who will help solidify the concepts learned in lecture and help you become a better problem solver. Each section leader has to apply and be accepted based on their mastery of the content and ability to teach.
- 4 assignments
- The ultimate joy of programming is to build things that you are proud of. The assignments are a chance to do exactly that while solidifying the knowledge learned in lecture and section in a real world setting. The last assignment is a final project that you can share with the world.
