Outline

Week 1

Your first step toward writing your first program is to install Visual Studio. So in this lesson, you'll learn how to install Visual Studio on your computer, and then do a walkthrough of creating your first program. You’ll also find out what each line of C++ code means, discuss how C++ code is translated to machine language that the computer understands, and learn how to see and fix errors in your code.

Week 2

Find out about data types, which correspond to the different types of information a program uses, and you'll write a program that can determine the amount of computer memory used by different data types. Then, learn how to create variables of different data types to store information.

Week 3

Learn how to harness the computer's calculating power with the C++ arithmetic operators. Then, learn how to use the different C++ comparison operators and control structures so different blocks of code execute depending on the user's choice.

Week 4

In this lesson, you'll explore how to use nested control structures and the different C++ logical operators when more than one choice determines which block of code executes. Then, learn how to use loops to make code repeat until a condition is met.

Week 5

In this lesson, you'll find out how to use arrays to store multiple items of information. Then, you'll discover how to use C strings to store non-numeric information in an array.

Week 6

Learn how to use functions to divide tasks and organize your code. And finally, you'll learn how to use file input/output to store and retrieve information.

FAQs

When can I get started?

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits.

How does it work?

Once a course session starts, two lessons will be released each week for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

The interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes two weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.

What if I need an extension?

The final exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the final exam has been released, you will have two weeks plus 10 days (24 days total) to complete the final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
