    Online Programming Courses Offered On Udemy.com That Teach Using Mnemonics, Metaphors And The Science Of Learning 3

  • Separating "Why" from "How"

    This course addresses all topics in two ways, first by having a no-code discussion explaining the β€œwhat” and the β€œwhy,” then with code examples that demonstrate the β€œhow.”

    Why Lessons

    Creative Right-Brained Visual Discussions

    • Often the creative right side of our brains use the excuse, β€œIt’s too complicated.”
    • So our right-brain videos, use plain English discussions, stories and memory mnemonics to address the β€œwhy” of programming without letting the technical stuff get in the way.Β 

    How Lessons

    Logical Left-Brained Explanations and Examples

    • Often the logical left side of our brains use the excuse, β€œWhat's the point?”
    • So our left-brain videos, use code examples and syntax explanations to address the β€œhow” of programming.

  • The Science of Learning

    The Spacing Effect

    • Learning is faster when the studying is spread out over time.
    • So this course includes an easy-to-follow schedule (90 min. sessions, 3 days a week) that takes two months to complete.
    • The course is split into 3 chapters that start with a no-code, reading-friendly e-book written in Q&A style with mnemonics.

    The Mnemonic Effect

    • Humans are wired to learn about real-life objects, but often in programming, learning is not hands on or visual.
    • Each concept we discuss is connected to a physical object that you have likely interacted with in real life and can imagine seeing, feeling, etc.Β 

    The Metaphor Effect

    • Learning is faster when an instructor builds on associations that a student has already made.
    • This course uses visual/spatial mnemonics along with every programming concept. Each mnemonic is tied to a metaphor, so you can connect the discussion topics with physical objects to aid in memory retention.

    Memory Palace

    • A Memory Palace works by imagining a place you know well and then putting the physical mnemonics we learned from the other chapter in your spacial memory. Β 
    • After the β€œwhat” and β€œwhy” videos, you will find bizarre stories that are all told in a single geographical location.Β 

    The Bizarreness Effect

    • The Bizarreness Effect is the tendency to remember bizarre material better than common material.
    • The stories are purposely designed to make absurd leaps of logic, anthropomorphize objects and generally address bizarre and unrealistic situations.

    The Belief Effect

    • Studies show that students who are told they will do better on tests end up performing better, and vice versa.
    • This course is sprinkled with stories that humanize the life of a programmer, comparing programming to creative writing, sports and painting. Just as anyone can learn writing or painting skills, anyone can learn to code; this course keeps that perspective in focus.

    The Eureka Effect

    • The Eureka Effect describes the experience of suddenly understanding a previously incomprehensible problem.
    • To help increase this sensation, we learn passes. This approach lets the concepts build up in steps, but also allows the whole picture to come into focus slowly, as you learn about previous concepts on a deeper and deeper level.
    • We use two numbering systems for every lesson. The top number shows the breadth: how much progress you are making across topics. The bottom number shows the depth: how deep into a topic's complexity you are.

    Project-Based Learning

    • Automate Boring Songs, Make Interactive Jokes, Randomly Pick Characters, Identify Positions, Remove Vowels, Reverse a String, Check for Palindromes, Pluralize Single Words, Calculator Stuff, Solve the Pythagorean Theorem, Odd or Even Test, Trig Homework, Randomize a Guessing Game, Print the Fibonacci Sequence & Solve the FizzBuzz Problem, Check if it's Dark Outside, Read a Spreadsheet from the Internet, Make a Progress Bar, Scrape Jokes off a Website, Share Data through an API & Make a Beautiful Chart
