Course Description

We believe in Content Quality and not Quantity. See it to believe it.

This course takes you to the journey of learning Java programming language in a very interesting and engaging way.

There are animated concept videos, which are highly engaging to learn concepts quickly in less than 5 minutes with a recap in each video. Hence the whole course can be done in 5 hours.

The journey start from the very basics and you gradually build on concepts, learn to solve problems and in no time you will be developing some complex applications.

We believe in learning by doing. There are level based challenges, you keep doing and increase your levels.

Your journey will have following attractions that you would love to experience:

1. Concept videos - A concept is white-boarded in an animated way.

2. Code demonstrations - The concept video is followed by a code demo.

3. Problem solving at different levels - Throw a use case and then solve it step-by-step. There are multiple levels of problem solving for every concept.

4. Retention quizzes - A good set of questions for revision and retention.

5. Programming challenges - A different level of programming challenge after every problem solving exercise.

This course has been developed using the latest learning pedagogy by the team of Subject Matter Experts, Instructional designers, Video and Voice Artists to give the learner an “Aha!” experience.
