Computer science and programming language can both be pretty intimidating. In fact, they can be a little forbidding if you try to jump in feet first. The thing about computers, though, is that they aren’t going anywhere, and they’re just going to keep talking their crazy language. That’s why it’s great to have a little help to chip away at that mystique.
Google Code University is a great resource that computer science students and educators can use to stay current with tools and computing technology. Everything is Creative Commons, too, so it should be easy to work it into your classroom.
This is from Google, too, lest you forget. So it goes almost without saying that there’s going to be some search functionality involved. The CS Curriculum Search allows you look for content published to the web by departments throughout the world, and then refine your search.
