Purdue Computer Science offers AP CS A MOOC through edX

Posted By Philip Sands, Monday, August 14, 2017

The Department of Computer Science at Purdue University is offering an online version of their first object-oriented programming course aimed at high school students. This course follows the Advanced Placement Computer Science A curriculum. Students will work through four six-week modules that run from September through April. The goal is to prepare all students for the AP CS A exam in May.

Last year, the course enrolled 10,000 students from 150 countries. This year, in addition to the free course open to students, Purdue would like to encourage educators to audit the course and join in a teacher cohort. This group will utilize the Piazza discussion forum in addition to the edX course materials to provide a private place to hold discussions regarding pedagogy and programming.

Interested participants can click the links below. After creating an edX account, users can join the course for free. Those that wish to be a part of the teacher cohort should e-mail Phil Sands (psands@purdue.edu).
