Python is among one of the most high-level programming languages around the world and used for general purpose programming. It is a programming language which lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively.
There are many easy to learn python tutorials available around the internet. Python Software Foundation have organized a good collection of resources for programmers and nonprogrammers to learn Python and get started with programming in python language.
Moodle.net – the open educational resources library of Moodle is the host of many free courses and content shared by Moodle users all over the world. Christian Thompson recently shared an introductory course for Python for Beginners on Moodle.net. The course is a self paced course and includes the basic topics in learning the Python language.
The Python course was created by Christian as summer assignment for students. The course includes the following topics:
- Introduction and Printing
- String Variables
- Integers and Floats
- User Input
Each unit starts with short 5 – 10 minute video explaining the topic followed by a review quiz for each topic. If you are looking for a getting started resource for teaching python to your students, you can download the “Python for Beginners 1 – Python Language Basics” course from Moodle.net.
Instructions for deploying this course on your Moodle site are mentioned in this Moodle documentation page.
