Excellent course for beginners with enough depth, programming and computational theory to increase their computer science knowledge to a higher level. It builds a good foundation of how computers work
The course is very well-designed and it helped me develop understand how to apply computational thinking in solving various types of problems as well as acquire basic skills of programming in Python.

A good introduction to computer science that sees some theoretical concepts discussed and demonstrated, before introducing you to simple algorithm design and problem-solving using Python.

Great course - the non-programming parts (making flow charts etc) were actually more difficult than the programming (simple Python programming - my first time programming in python)

It was amazing program to learn the computational thinking and the basic of python programming. Some tests were difficult for me, but it was good training to learn the programming.

Well structured - by unit 4 I was able to apply what we learned in previous units to solve programming challenges I would have otherwise found way too difficult to attempt.
創建者 Gaurav S•
Well taught with good examples and exercises that require thinking but still approachable. Very well laid out and taught. Definitely sparked an interest to go learn more.

Great overview of computational thinking. I recommend this course for anyone who's starting out in computer programming or any profession that involves problem solving.
創建者 Ben S•
I really enjoyed many parts of this course, and feel more confident in applying the tenants of computational thinking to problems I encounter from here on out. Thanks!

Value, conherence content, life-long skill for problem solving. It the best in Computational Thinking, you can also consider as good Introduction to Computer Sciences.
創建者 Michael V•
Great course! I really enjoyed this learning format and learned some fundamental computational thinking skills that I will be able to apply to programming and beyond.

Great course for non-programmers to refresh their basic computational thinking knowledge before taking more complex Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence concepts
創建者 Sonny T•
Great course, this gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my MS in CS through UPenn. The Coursera platform is amazing and the forums are helpful when you're stuck

I found this course to be an excellent introduction to both basic programming structures and the overall process of creating an algorithmic solution to problems.

This is a really great foundational course if you are new to coding. It will give you a solid foundation for learning how to code later. I really enjoyed it too!
創建者 HENGYAN T•
I learned the methods to solve the problem with computational thinking and the course is really great. I will recommend this course to my friends and colleagues.

More than yet another programming crash course. The only requirements here are your brain and desire to solve real-world problems. Simple and clear for everyone.
創建者 Chian Y L•
A very thorough and engaging experience for student. Lots of video and very good explanation of computer science concept and practical problems involving python
創建者 Binny J•
It was a nice course. The content was very indulging, thought provoking, very good for beginners to get addicted slowly on Computational Thinking in every day.
創建者 Steven Y•
Excellent and thoughtfully made introduction to computational thinking. It is a very useful launching point for getting into more advanced computing classes.
創建者 Yaair A•
Great content and well explained. There's a gap of pace in week 4 where the python content is condensed in one week, making the last assignment a bit vague.
創建者 Yashwant S•
This is a good short starter course for people leaping into IT and good refresher course for some. I could finish the audit (minus assignment) in two days
創建者 Camilo J•
Great course for an introduction to Computer Science. Learned a lot and enjoyed even more. The quality of the material (video production) is really goof.
創建者 Han X•
If you don't have programming experience, you may find the last module a bit challenge. But overall, it's a very good, structured, informative course.
創建者 Jatin G•
A very interactive and beneficial course , I say that this is the best course one should take before starting programming and competitive programming
創建者 Daniel M•
Great course for people new to computing, but also helpful for those who have dabbled in various languages but want to understand the bigger picture.

Excellent foundational knowledge for problem solving, especially as it pertains to computer science, while not limited to it. Highly recommended.
