Course Description

If you are a student wanting to understand the power of C, or an adult learner simply wondering what the C Programming language is all about, this free introductory course is for you.


The C programming language is one of the most popular and widely used programming languages. It is a general-purpose programming language and there are very few computer systems in existence that are not set up for its use (i.e. where a C compiler does not exist).


This course introduces you to the basics of programming in C. You will learn how programming languages work with data, what program flow is, and how to use functions, methods and routines. You will also get step-by-step instructions on how to create simple C programs and how to run them.


This course will be useful to all IT, software and computer professionals who would like an introduction to the C programming language and its features, and to those who would like to learn more about this widely used programming language.

  • Ahmad Rizwan
    Ahmad Rizwan Pakistan I have chosen C programming as I know it forms the basis for all programming languages and mostly the syntex tends to change with each language. Having knowledge about C, will give me some idea of programming and to understand other languages in future where I intend to pursue Java and HTML also. I just hope I am on the right track to overcome my inner fears and be able to develop interest to continue to complete this course. 2015-06-22 09:06:25
  • Ahmad Rizwan
    Ahmad Rizwan Pakistan I have been scared of programming for so many years. Always felt it is not for me and continued to believe so. Now I feel I am being left behind in the field of IT as even non technical jobs like teaching children about ICT where some introduction to programming is involved, I feel left out. I have decided to do these courses during this summer holidays and try and become more confident in my new role as an ICT teacher. 2015-06-22 09:06:57
