We wish to inform all students who registered for the Course, Computer science and Programming at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology(MITX) at EDX, via the VNTI University portal, that the Course begins Today.
See more Informations below for details.
Welcome to the launch of 6.00x, which begins today! To get started, visit

The EDX portal remains the source where all of this week’s materials are now live. We will also do an early release of next week’s materials, in case you want to start planning ahead. 6.00x Week 2 materials will be fully released by tomorrow evening.
Before you dive into the course material, we encourage you to listen to the videos that introduce you to the edX platform and guide you through how to best use it throughout the course.
This first week in 6.00x, you will learn about the fundamental principles of computation and computational thinking (how to reason like a computer scientist and use those ideas to tackle problems from a wide range of disciplines).
We will also start learning the basic elements of Python, the programming language in which we will be developing our tools throughout the course. We encourage you to complete the “finger exercises” interspersed with the lecture video segments. Some of these early questions are very simple, but they will get you into the habit of using the finger exercises to check your understanding of lecture material.
There is no homework in the first week, other than a guide for installing the version of Python we recommend you to use. The first real problem set will be released as part of the second week’s material.We hope you enjoy your first week of class!
Eric, John, Chris, and the 6.00x Course Team
