The important thing to note about IT is it is never as hard as you think. IT is based entirely on logic, creativity and procedural processes that can be amended, for instance, we each have our own way of making a cup of tea.
It is not the case that you cannot do IT, but rather people imagine it to be too complex and out of their reach, however the industry “Secret” that needs to be shared is that IT is all about “Making" first, through using simple easy but ever more involved processes that allow people to find their own voice in this media from blogging, coding to MineCraft with modding; there is no just "One" way to to engaging, it's up to you how you do it, we just supply the framework.
This course covers “Making” as a tool to engage with digital making, including preparing your own content so that it is usable, hackable, re-iterable and sharable with any audience based on their interest as the first point of engagement.
To demystify Computer Science and coding.
