Programming in Visual Basic
Computers are capable of doing fantastic things, ranging from mundane calculations to exciting virtual reality. However, it is a programmer’s job to teach the computer how to do meaningful tasks. That’s where you come in.
This course is an exploratory programming course that uses one of the easiest programming languages in the world today, Visual Basic. It’s a graphically-oriented language that allows for the easy construction of useful programs. Students will gradually build a vocabulary and syntax to create programs that meet specific guidelines. The logic and creativity used in solving the course problems will enlarge a student’s capacity for problem-solving in all other disciplines.
The course activities provide a great introduction to programming in general. With the support of the course instructor and the rest of the class, students will experience a non-threatening laboratory in which to experiment with their ideas.
