Teaching with PerfectLearn

PerfectLearn’s beta testing phase is coming to an end. That is, in April I will officially launch PerfectLearn. What this means is that I can start using PerfectLearn in another online project of mine: YouProgramming.

YouProgramming is a project that I started well over a year ago (and then put on hold while I was building PerfectLearn). It’s both a website and an accompanying YouTube channel aimed at teaching people how to program. The various programming courses (for both the Java and Python programming languages) consist of a series of screencasts and supporting materials in the form of PDF files.

PerfectLearn is unique in that it can be used by teachers and students to help organize their teaching materials and personal knowledge, respectively.

PerfectLearn is unique in that it can be used by teachers and students to help organize their teaching materials and personal knowledge, respectively. What’s more, PerfectLearn’s versatility makes it an ideal tool for course instructors to use for planning, building, and organizing (online) courses. One of the features that I am already adding to PerfectLearn to make it more suitable as a teaching tool is the ability to (partially) automate the generation of the accompanying learning materials for each part of the course, as an ebook, based on a selection of topics stored in PerfectLearn.

What this all means is that over the course of the next couple of weeks I will start building courses using PerfectLearn followed by publishing those courses on both YouProgramming’s and PerfectLearn’s YouTube channels. I will keep you all posted as to my progress.

Stay tuned for updates. Subscribe to the PerfectLearn newsletter.
