This 12 week course will explore the world of software engineering, computing and problem solving. While Computing 1 only takes four to five hours a week (that's nothing!), you'll struggle to tear yourself away as you learn:

  • abstraction, estimation, programming, machine code, C, problem solving
  • top down design, arithmetic expressions, layout, style++
  • types, variables, memory other numeric types
  • while and for loops, stack frames, arrays...

Even better, Computing 1 will give you an understanding of what it's like to be a developer and enable you to appreciate the art of computing.

Whether you're in Sydney, Singapore or Santiago, you'll love Computing 1 on OpenLearning. You won't just take the course, you'll be a part of the course by contributing to the lecture notes and helping other students.

You'll enjoy a mix of short activities, fun software puzzles and projects. You'll learn at your own pace and feel motivated with helpful and immediate feedback on your progress.
