Programming for everyone

- Introduction to computer programming in VISCUIT -


We used the visual programming language VISCUIT to develop a new curriculum both for teaching programming and for answering the question “What is a computer?”. The course was open to non-experts, and it was well received. For non-experts, with classroom learning or reading alone, it is very difficult to understand what a computer is. The experience of writing a program is important too. Using VISCUIT, which makes it simple to write programs, non-experts can understand computers easily. By achieving a widespread understanding of computers, everyone will be able to help construct the coming IT society.
