Once upon a time, learning computer science in Nigeria was bleak but now, there's a 6.00.1x.

This course provides an excellent introduction to  computer science and programming. The course is taught online  by professors at MIT. I've been using a flipped MOOC model that leverages the course content from 6.00.1x to teach programming since 2016. 

Taking this course is privilege. I'm immensely grateful to the good people at MITx for providing this opportunity to the world . In particular, it provides young Nigerians with a credible and viable way to learn. Our country is mired with problems and this course definitely builds your problem solving skills with weekly intriguing challenges that require programming solutions

Happily ever after ending. In my humble opinion,  the course  is heaven sent. Everyone should try it. 

15 hours per week commitment (to MIT's lecture videos and assignments) recommended to keep pace with the course.

Best Regards,
