The Intro to Java course consists of four levels (10 lessons per level) and 27 software projects. Students learn the basics of text-based coding using Processing, a simplified version of Java. Students develop a variety of 2D and 3D digital art, animations, apps and games, such as Snake and Catch. This course covers the key computer science concepts such as functions, loops, if statements, variables, lists, booleans, recursive algorithms; and how they are used in Java. Students use an online programming environment with endless access to online study materials, allowing them to advance their coding skills outside their virtual classroom.
By the end of the Intro to Java online coding course students should become confident with using text-based coding to program simple projects themselves. They should have an extensive knowledge of programming logic and key coding concepts such as functions, loops, if statements, variables, lists, booleans, recursive algorithms. All students will undergo a formal assessment and parents will receive individual reports outlining the achievements and progress of their child.
