Educational Programming Language
There is a reason why pilots first learn with a flight simulator, before entering the cockpit of a real plane. For the same reason, this course uses an educational programming language called Karel the Robot. This legendary programming language is simplified Python: It uses simple English commands such as “go”, “left”, “right”, “get”, “put”, “repeat”, “if”, “while” etc. which allows students to focus on developing algorithmic and problem-solving skills which are a crucial prerequisite for success in computer programming.
