Programming with Scratch

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology via Coursera


Learning coding is not only about understanding the programming language being used, but also developing important computational thinking skills, which are useful for problem solving across many disciplinary areas. In this course, students will learn basic programming skills by creating interactive storybooks, animations, and games with Scratch, which is a block-based visual programming language for anyone new to coding.

    Max Chau completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    (This review is based on my experience in HKMOOC.)
    The materials provided are unclear and confusing. First, the resolutions of the videos are very low that I can't clearly see the codes on the video. Also, there are confusing questions in quizzes and exams, and I can't know why the answers are right/wrong. The questions themselves are also boring.
