We currently have three areas (Excel, Databases, Python) relevant to data science that can be taken in various orders to suit individual learners, however, within each area courses may have study paths. Check the individual course prerequisites.
What eCollege computer programming course should I start with?
It is a good idea to look into any 3rd level course you are interested in as much as possible and ask questions to anything you can’t find the answers to in your research. Going into a technical course with your eyes open, and your expectations matching the syllabus and the workload is important.
If you are interested in programming, we have three entry points. Although multiple courses are encouraged one after the other, only one course should be taken at a time. All our online courses are self-paced within an enrolment period.
If you have an idea what area of software development you want to pursue, then there may be more specific conversations to have but when people ask me which language they should start with, my (very) general advice is this:
You should still go in with your eyes open and I’d recommend starting to learn programming from a book or YouTube, even for a short time just to get a proper taste of what you’ll be studying before signing up to a 3rd level course.
