Learner reviews:

“I thought that this was an excellent course. All of the explanations and examples were easy to follow, and I felt that the course built upon itself in a way that was easy to follow along. I never felt lost, and I feel much more confident trying to develop my own text adventure now.”

Computer Science and Computational Thinking are now being taught to learners of all ages, and Python has become the popular choice in schools for learning text-based programming.  Many learners and teachers, however, struggle with the curriculum requirements beyond the more simple Scratch, Flowol and Small Basic block programming.  Python is the perfect next step, and you don’t need to purchase or download the software, as it is available for free online.

The fun Text Adventure Game is designed to help you, the learners and teachers / trainees, understand the concepts of text-based computer programming and the Python computer language, using simple, easy to follow steps.  You can now learn in your own time, and in the comfort of your own home through Udemy’s online learning platform, how to program using the most essential commands in the Python programming software.  The ideas from this course can even be taken into the classroom for the  to use, making life so much easier.

This Python course focuses specifically on helping you to get up and running with real practical skills and understanding.  Follow step by step with videos, downloads, quizzes and tasks.  Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have a working Text Adventure Game that can be used by others and developed further with more intricate features when you’re ready.  Most importantly, you’ll be ready to confidently teach these skills and / or create simple programs effectively using Python programming language.  You’ll soon be ready to progress onto more advanced programming skills with a better understanding.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
