Zyante’s Programming in C++ course provides a highly interactive “learn by doing” experience. This is especially significant for computer programming which is a hands-on field in which students learn best by trying ideas in code. Zyante’s offerings explain concepts with a variety of tools: animations, question sets, interactive exercises, and video demonstrations that both engage students and provide very effective ways of explaining concepts that students often struggle with.
- Explain the basics of how a computer works, then write a first program.
- Use standard input and output, and understand common syntax errors.
