Free Online Course: Introduction to Computer Science from edx

EdX is offering a free online course called “CS50’s Introduction to Computer Science”, which is an introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming. As an entry-level course, CS50x teaches students how to think algorithmically and solve problems efficiently. Topics include abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development. Languages include C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML. Problem sets inspired by real-world domains of biology, cryptography, finance, forensics, and gaming. The on-campus version of CS50x, CS50, is Harvard's largest course. The course will include 9 problem sets (10 to 20 hours each) and 1 final project. 

Eligibility:

  1. Students who earn a satisfactory score on 9 problem sets (i.e., programming assignments) and a final project are eligible for a certificate. 
  2. This is a self-paced course–you may take CS50x on your own schedule. It’s also for majors and non-majors alike, with or without prior programming experience.
  3. HarvardX requires individuals who enroll in its courses on edX to abide by the terms of the edX honor code. HarvardX will take appropriate corrective action in response to violations, which may include dismissal from the course; revocation of any certificates received for the course or other remedies as circumstances warrant.
  4. No refunds will be issued in the case of corrective action for such violations. 
  5. Enrollees who are taking HarvardX courses as part of another program will also be governed by the academic policies of those programs.

What you'll Learn:

  1. A broad and robust understanding of computer science and programming.
  2. How to think algorithmically and solve programming problems efficiently.
  3. Concepts like abstraction, algorithms, data structures, encapsulation, resource management, security, software engineering, and web development.
  4. Familiarity in a number of languages, including C, Python, SQL, and JavaScript plus CSS and HTML.
  5. How to engage with a vibrant community of like-minded learners from all levels of experience.
  6. How to develop and present a final programming project to your peers.
