Python 3 Course for the 2017-18 school year

May 26, 2017

I am excited to announce our upcoming Python course: Beginners Python 3.

A beginners course covering Python 3, students go from an absolute beginner, to having a working knowledge of object oriented Python.  Course is based on Python 3.6.

StudioWeb course details:

In addition to a set of comprehensive and engaging videos, Power Python 3 will include quizzing, code challenges, and gamification that is provided by the StudioWeb app. Your students will learn Python easily, and they will have fun too!

Each video lesson is supported by 4-5 quiz questions, that are made up of both code challenges and multiple choice questions. All our courses leverage the spiral teaching method, that helps us to achieve great outcomes with students.

Teacher’s Dream:

From a teacher’s perspective, StudioWeb provides classroom automation tools that makes it effortless to manage multiple classrooms. In fact, we have many teachers who simply take on the role of classroom facilitator. StudioWeb does the teaching!

At the time of this writing, we are just finalizing the course in terms of the range of topics covered, from the basics to OOP … I will include the table of contents at the bottom of this post. Thus far 50 lessons are complete. The course should have ~55 lessons.

Some of the tools that the StudioWeb app provides:

  • Auto grading by course, chapter and lesson
  • Realtime progress tracking of student progress and performance
  • Built in hinting so it is impossible for students to get stuck
  • Excel output of final grades
  • Daily activity tracking

Thanks to years of working with many schools, StudioWeb is highly refined and you will achieve exceptional outcomes. We have a 100% renewal rate with schools.

Advance Demo request welcome!
