Unique open online programming course starts again at Helsinki University

This is the fifth year in a row that the massive open online course (MOOC) will start at the University of Helsinki. Finns can take the course just for fun, as a part of their upper-secondary education, or even as an entrance exam to the university.

The course is free of charge, and it is so basic that students with no experience of programming can follow it.

Previous courses have been attended by thousands of enthusiastic students, who have found it useful and fun. The 14-week course follows the same requirements as the basic programming courses of the department, introducing algorithmic thinking, modern object-oriented programming, and the relevant issue of code quality in software engineering.
