With many careers today involving some form of computation, there is a growing urgency for individuals to move beyond digital literacy, to understand how digital technologies work, and to develop literacy in code.
The University of Adelaide is offering a MOOC called “Think. Create. Code” to help students understand the inner workings of digital technology, and creating and manipulating images with code. Your images and animations will be displayed in an online Art Gallery, forming part of a vibrant learning community.
You will also develop effective computational thinking skills and concepts transferable to other coding environments and programming languages.
What you’ll learn:
- Computational thinking skills
- Introductory programming concepts, such as sequencing, iteration and selection
- Skills and knowledge of how to create art and basic animations with ProcessingJS
- Preparation for study of computer science or other programming languages
The course can be done from anywhere at anytime.
