If you want to learn more about programming and are hoping to get practical coding experience, you’ll be happy to know that Udemy now supports coding exercises. Coding exercises are an interactive, compelling way to test what you’ve learned in your programming courses.
What are Coding Exercises?
Coding exercises are an interactive tool that instructors can add to their courses. You enter code directly onto the page and can run the function without switching programs or screens. The exercises also provide hints when you’ve made an entry error, so you can correct the mistake and proceed with your coding.
Which Udemy Courses Offer Coding Exercises?
We’re really excited about Instructor Rick Walter’s Python for Programmers course. It's a new courses with really helpful coding exercises. We are also actively working with other instructors to add more and more courses with coding exercises!
You can always check to see whether a programming course includes coding exercises by looking at the course landing page. If it does offer coding exercises, you will see coding exercises posted below the course information.
Which Programming Languages are Supported for the Coding Exercises?
Who Should I Contact if I get Stuck Completing a Coding Exercise? Or if I Have a Question About it?
If you’re unable to complete the coding exercise, or have any questions regarding it, the best way to find answers is to use the Q&A. If you enter an incorrect solution, then you will see a prompt on the bottom left hand of the page, asking you if you’d like to ask a question in the Q&A.
Other students may have asked the same question already, and if so, the instructor likely posted an answer. If no one else has asked your question, however, you can quickly post it in the Q&A for the instructor to see.
If you don’t receive a response in the Q&A you can also reach out to the instructors directly. They are the experts when it comes to the content in their courses, and are the best people to ask any questions regarding it. This article outlines how you contact the instructor of a course.
