Make your own fun Android apps with MIT App Inventor (adults)

MIT App Inventor is a visual programming environment that enables everyone to build apps for smartphones and tablets.

The course for beginners does not require any previous programming experience. It starts with an introduction to the App Inventor interface. Then, after Event-Driven Programming is explained, learners will discover the available command blocks which they will have to combine to make their own apps. During this course, learners will have the opportunity to use their imagination and practise analytical and critical thinking to create their own apps such as animations, games, quizzes, tourist guides or drawing apps.

This course also aims to engage intermediate or even advanced App Inventor programmers who can build on their previous experience to create more sophisticated apps.

The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Extra information

Learners will need a desktop computer or a laptop to create their apps and an Android device to test them.

About Me

As a teacher specialized in programming and ICT, I provide material and resources for the development of analytical, critical, and computational thinking, while also encouraging my students to be creative. I design activities for the cultivation of interpersonal and social skills and a team-working ethos, which are essential for establishing a culture of mutual respect and cooperation. Furthermore, I aim to develop and foster a secure IT environment and an e-safe culture.

I have designed and implemented programming courses not only for young but also adult learners. Some of those courses do not require prior programming experience while some others are more advanced so that learners can choose the one best suited to their needs.

Since 2014, I have also been authorized to teach Maths in light of my mathematical background from my university studies. Therefore, in addition to my computer programming courses, I offer primary and secondary maths lessons.

Excellent teacher!
Fantastic! Ilias really prepared well and took the time to understand what my son needed. He was very positive and encouraging and we look forward to the next lesson!
Are you dreaming of creating your own games, animations or interactive stories? This course aims to enagage learners regardless of their programming experience. The course for beginners starts with a description of the interface and how you can import or create various backgrounds or objects. An introduction to basic command blocks follows, and as the course progresses, learners are given many opportunities to be creative, practise analytical and critical thinking, and combine various command blocks to add functionality to their programs. The course also aims to foster effective communication, as learners have the opportunity to share their creations on Scratch community, receive feedback and exchange ideas with other members. This course is suitable for children and teenagers.
Python is easier to learn and understand than other programming languages. Its instructions are simple and easily readable with a clean syntax which doesn't really involve complex coding. However simple and easy to learn, Python can be used to create the highly interactive programs. This course aims to engage learners with little or even no previous programming experience. The programme for beginners starts with an introduction to the basic fundamentals of Python (expressions, conditionals, and functions). Then, as the course progresses, learners will be able to combine Python commands and modules like Pygame, Matplotlib, Numpy and Tkinter to implement their ideas and develop skills like computational thinking, creativity and problem solving. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.
Python is a programming language with a simple syntax, similar to the English language. It allows developers to write programs with fewer lines than some other programming languages. It can be used in many areas such as web development, mathematics, science, education and general purpose software development. This course aims to demonstrate how Python can be used to create solutions to real-life problems or programs that can be used to faciltate tasks performed at school, in a workplace or at home. It aims to engage not only learners with advanced programming experience but also those who have little or not any experience at all. Creative and critical thinking are continuously encouraged during the lessons. Relevant topics: - Input/Output - Data types and variables - Operators - Lists,tuples, sets - If / else - Loops - Functions - Lambda - Classes/Objects - Inheritance - Iterators - Scope - File handling - Modules - NumPy - Python Maplotlib - Python SciPy The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners. Younger learners may prefer to start with my course entitled “Create fun games and interactive programs in Python”.

This course aims to engage learners with little or no programming experience to create Java programs. Participants are introduced to object-oriented programming concepts, terminology and syntax, and the steps required to create basic Java programs using the Alice and Eclipse interactive development environments. Hand-on practice enables learners to experience the power of computer programming. The Java™ programming language can be challenging for computer programmers with limited or no experience in object-oriented programming. To provide an easy introduction to Java, Alice is explored first in this course, so that fundamental principles and skills are established using 3D animations in a fun, visually rich environment. When learners become familiar with the concepts of object-oriented programming, they can proceed with the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE), which is widely used in computer programming. It contains a basic workspace and an extendable plug-in system for customising the environment. The content and pace of the course is adapted to the age and needs of the learners.

Learn Arduino, STM32 and ARM assembler programming, Z80, Intel 8086 P, ython
I am an associate professor in industrial engineering and electrical engineering, passionate about electronics and industrial IT, I have carried out several projects in the field of industrial automation ARDUINO, and the STM32 are free hardware microcontrollers. They are very useful for learning electronics and coding at the same time. They are great estimators because we can solve problems and watch the results physically. Thanks to the size of its community and the openness of its philosophy, information is widely accessible. ARDUINO, PICs and the STM32 allow us to undertake countless projects of all kinds. In a way, it's a little door through which you can easily access the world of makers. Among others. My main goal is to stimulate creativity and curiosity. In addition to allowing my student to acquire a level of competence that allows him to function on his own.

Private coding / programming lessons with python
Python is one of the best, or the best, language to start learning to code. It is, also, one of the languages more used today. Particularly in the more avant-garde fields, machine learning, for example. This popularity makes python constantly evolve. Its tools and libraries are ample, free and very varied. I am an aeronautical engineer who likes to share what he can do. I profit by teaching and motivating people. I am used to working with people of different ages. I believe in segmentation, visualization of progress, objective results and practice. Beyond these general lines, there is no rule or magic method. Some things work with some students and not with others. Adapting to needs is really the goal of private lessons. So I will do my best to find what motivates and helps my student.

Maths, Physics, and Programming tutoring for all levels
Math, Physics, and Programming are all incredibly important in the modern world. Take a look at any of the groundbreaking discoveries of the 21st century and you will find it involved at least one if not all of these subjects. I was privileged to work at several international research centers and experience first-hand the power such a tool-set provides. Currently, I am a Lecturer at TU Delft and enjoy sharing my knowledge with the new generation of enthusiastic students. However, I also would like to help school students, who might experience some problems with these subjects, to understand them and develop a sustainable passion for learning. In my classes, I always use a personal approach, relating study material to the topics students already know and like. In such a way I can make sure that students not only understand the material but remember it longer and keep motivated to learn more about it.

The basics of programming in Java and Python and C.
Learning to program neatly and effectively can be difficult and time consuming without adequate explanations. That's why I offer programming learning courses for the following languages: -Python (Easy to take in hand) -Java (more intermediate level to start) -C (quite complicated without any knowledge in programming) The purpose of the various courses will be to help future programmers to take the programming tool into their own hands but also the appropriate programming techniques. At the end of these courses, the programmer will be able to create a program of the size that he wishes without any restriction except for his imagination. He will also be able to find the necessary information where it is needed on the web.
