Best Practices (Please Read):
The best way to use this course:
1.) Watch the lecture. Seems self explanatory so let me elaborate; I would prefer students to put your pencils down(not write any code) and watch closely to the lecture and its content. This will allow you to download all important information to your brain before trying it yourself. Also, watch the class in order from beginning to end; students sometimes like to jump ahead, this I cannot recommend doing. The way this class is structured is intended to be done from start to finish line.
2.) After each lecture, please note that the code covered in class is readily available for download. It is my expectation of the student to download this code and load it into their environments to play around and be creative. This is the exercise I expect students to do before moving onto the next lecture. This is an important time for students to go and break things; that’s right break the code I give you. In learning to code especially, you learn from fixing what is broken! So I encourage the student to be creative with how they want to treat the downloadable resources; There are no wrong ways to approach this method of learning on your own.
3.) As the facilitator of your learning, if you get stuck on something or would like to share with the class your experience, please add your thoughts and comments to the Q and A section of this course. An open dialogue with myself or other students will reinforce the ideas covered in the lectures.
Please enjoy the course!
