C# Mini Course

So this is an experiment of sorts. Last summer I was asked to train some college students in C#. The goal was to get them ready to teach some very basic programming to high school students for a short summer program. The students I was to train were in South Dakota. Now South Dakota is a wonderful place but I didn’t quite have the travel funds to go out and do this in person so I did it online. Since I had the capability to record the training I did. Later I gathered it all up and put it on the Faculty Connection in the Faculty Resource section. You can find this C# Mini Course here. What’s in it?

First off there are about 6 to 8 hours of me lecturing and demonstrating what I was talking about. basically just me teaching the way I would do in person – more or less. You can see the slides I used and watch me demo code examples. That’s a start but I also packaged up the PowerPoint slides that I used. That way if a teacher wants to use them their way they can do that. I also included sample and demo code that I used. Hopefully teachers will find that useful as well. There is also a copy of the C# project book that we have been sharing for years now with some success.

So if you are looking for something to help get started, something at a simple level without a lot of complexity this may be useful. I hope so. It’s not the fanciest nor the highest production value but the students I taught with it did pretty darn well if I do say so myself. If I get some feedback that I can incorporate into either improving this set or when creating a next level of training I would appreciate it very much.

    Is there a particular order to the videos?  The names really do not give me a clue.  But then a lot of things don't give me a clue.  And sometimes I am just clueless.

    It's my fault Garth. I should have renamed the videos to make it all more clear. I'll try and make that happen as soon as I can. Will post an order later today though.
