for a total beginner in coding, this course was the perfect start! It was easy to understand, and easy to program (coding wit already?)
Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful way to learn!

You will have to make a Scratch account (free) for this course.
Areti is a very clear instructor that explained concepts very well for complete beginners into programming, like myself and I found the course insightful.
1) Presentation - I couldn't help but wonder whether they had a lower target age (teenagers or younger) in mind, which was entertaining at some points but also distracting at other times. // Also, I only realized halfway through the course that it is in fact possible to see what Areti is doing on the Scratch program once the quality of the video is adjusted.
2) Projects/Time Commitment - Going through the lectures and quizzes are not time consuming at all, but the projects (especially the final project) takes a lot of time. It took longer than expected because I felt like much of the practical instructions on how to use Scratch for specific purposes were not provided during the course, leaving me to work by myself.
3) Discussion Forum - When I took the course, the discussion forum was close to being dead (especially compared to some of the other courses that I was taking simultaneously on Coursera). Gerry (mentor) did an amazing job responding to my inquiry, but I noticed that although there were a lot of students talking at the beginning, introducing themselves, there weren't that many discussions concerning the final assignment, making me feel like I was working alone. It would be great if there was more time to work on the final project, and perhaps a way in which students can collaborate and help out others when faced with a bug (ie preliminary project submission and feedback session).
I recommend taking this course, but realistically, you won't be program proficient after 5 weeks. You will, however, learn some basic programming theory, understand how programming works, and learn how to make a fun interactive game on Scratch!

This course is ok but it is not providing any certificate .I think certificates motivates us to achieve our goals.It gives courage that Yes!!we have completed this course
But you are not providing us a certificate 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢
But we are happy that we have learnt a lot. We will be happier to receive your certificate.

This course covered the basics of computer programming and software engineering. Though it use scratch desktop as it programming tool, knowledge from this course can be applied in any other programming language with regards to the approaches to designing a program.

It's a course that sums up very properly the terms and elements used in Programming. However, I particularly think that focusing mainly on the game "Scratch", overshadows the importance of Programming as a profession. Sometimes it felt like I was learning how to play a game, only, and not actually taking a course on Programming. My suggestion would be to add more practical elements to this course, to make it feel more professional. There's one single video, for example, in which the instructor shows us in practice how a code would look like in a Programming language. It would've been good if this had happened more often. Showing real codes, exploring the programming languages, giving context to situations in which programmers put their abilities in practice, etc.
