Stanford offers its free online course to learn programming from home


Stanford University is once again offering its acclaimed free online course “Code In Place,” and it’s the third time it has been provided since its launch in 2020!

This introductory programming course is revolutionizing the way online education is taught and should serve as an example for other educational institutions.

Developed by a team of distinguished computer science professors from Stanford, led by Chris Piech and Mehran Sahami, “Code In Place” replicates the first half of CS106A (Programming Methodology), one of Stanford’s most popular courses with over 1,600 students enrolled annually.

In just six weeks, participants learn the fundamentals of programming using the Python language.

One of the standout features of this course is its accessibility, as no prior programming knowledge is required.

On its frequently asked questions page, it emphasizes that you only need to know how to turn on a computer and have basic arithmetic knowledge. It’s perfect for beginners who want to delve into the world of programming.

The course structure is unique as it combines weekly lecture videos, interactive 50-minute sections with a volunteer teacher, and practical assignments.

Although it is offered online and for free, “Code In Place” sets itself apart from other massive open online courses (MOOCs) by offering a low student-to-instructor ratio.


This ensures more personalized interaction and a higher completion rate. In fact, the completion rate of this course in previous editions was over ten times higher than that of other similar MOOCs.
