When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Once you enroll for a Certificate, you’ll have access to all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments (if applicable). Peer review assignments can only be submitted and reviewed once your session has begun. If you choose to explore the course without purchasing, you may not be able to access certain assignments.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
What resources can I access if I take this course for free?
All learners can access all the videos, assessments, interactive learning objects (ILO), virtual machine (VM) image, and forums for free.
Can I take this course for university credit?
No. The PVG course by itself does not qualify for credit.
Getting course credit from the University of Alberta requires a learner to apply to the University as either a degree or an open-studies student. Once accepted, a student must enrol, and attend classes and labs on-campus. For such students, PVG can be used as part of a for-credit introductory course to computer science and programming, called Computing Science (CMPUT) 174, Introduction to the Foundations of Computing, Part 1.
