for a total beginner in coding, this course was the perfect start! It was easy to understand, and easy to program (coding wit already?)

Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful way to learn!

I've learnt what is pseudocode and how to write it. It taught me how to work with a method. You don't learn a language but the logic of computing and basic concepts. You learn how to write code using your pencil and paper, searching and learning from others. Basic skills.

It was amazing to be a part of this course. This course gives me a lot of knowledge that I did not know. This course teaches me the purpose of programming and how programming change our life. At last, I would like to say that this is a fantastic and knowledgeable course.

I enjoyed this course it was fast and easy to do my only complaint is that when you submit your final project it is a little complicated to send but other than that this course is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to learn this skill as well.

I would like to thank the instructor for introducing us to programming in an interactive manner. The programming language is basically for a younger audience. But anyone who wants to make their mark in coding can enrol in this course to see how programming works.

Good basic training for non-programmers. Clear instructions, good examples and fun assignments. Pace is somewhat slow, but that's just my personal opinion (as a complete novice in programming); for others it might have been good.

I loved it. I learned a lot and the course was easy to follow. The course load was manageable and even though I've never studied anything about coding before, I could do the assignments easily. This is a very good course for beginners.

This was a fun course. Helped understands the basics of software development. The lectures were small and that I guess was the best part. A lot of projects helped in really putting all that knowledge into real projects.

A good introductory course to programming using Scratch, which teach you about the concept in programming. It's interesting and statisfying to be able to make your own animation/simple game.

If you're starting out without any prior background in programming this course is an easy one to understand the nitty-gritty's of programming concepts with the help of Scratch platform.

It will be much better if you people will improve peer-graded assignments as peers don't take it serious and give others bad grades and not according to expectations... Thank You

The Course should be updated to Scratch 3.0, because there are many functions that changed from Version 2.0 to 3.0. In Summary i had a lot of fun during the course.

I really enjoyed the course and the instruction was great. I would have liked it more if there was a written component for the materials to use as a reference.

Fantastic course!!! A few technical glitches and it could use an update to the new software, but overall I really enjoyed learning everything in this course.

Good intro to programming! Great explanation in a visual interface (scratch) that can later be applied to other programming languages. Good foundation course.

The course itself was very great, well presented and easy to get to grips with. However, I feel the peer review system is a bit flawed.

It's a good way to start in code. But it's just for a program; well still being a good course, funny and you can learn a lot :) thanks

It was nice learning something totally different from all I have ever learnt. I enjoyed every bit of the class and enjoy coding.
