    Class Details

    Mentive classes take place once a week in a virtual online classroom, and follow a curriculum tailored to supplement the course topics with real-life examples, exercises and challenges. We also threw in two exclusive sessions to expand on industry best practices and applications of the concepts learned.

    Our experienced mentors often customize parts of the content to suit your specific group’s needs.

    • Week 1
      Free bonus
      First week of class! Meet your group, get started with setting things up and learn about each others learning objectives.
    • Week 2
      Are computers intelligent? Do computers "think" and if so how is it different from how humans think?
    • Week 3
      Get started animating some quirky characters using the Scratch programming language, and learn two fundamental concepts in programming: conditionals and repetition.
    • Week 4
      Computers can only work with data by first representing it in binary. Why and how?
    • Week 5
      Use the skills you learned in weeks 2 and 3 to create animations, sound, and a simple video game.
    • Week 6
      Sorting things into a predictable order, and searching for things in a large collection, are fundamental to how computers deal with large collections of information. This week's material shows how that's done.
    • Week 7

    Why learn in small groups?
    Learning online should not mean learning alone. Just like in high-school or college, collaborating with classmates and participating in class discussions of the course content are a fundamental part of learning. By taking the course with a small group of classmates, students benefit from the experience and perspectives of their fellow students, as well as from the guidance of a mentor.
    How can Mentive’s live classes be so affordable?
    The best learning experience can only be achieved with a great platform, carefully crafted course materials, and the best mentors. We never compromise on any of those. By teaching in small groups, we are able to share the costs of running each class among several students, resulting in a very low tuition fee per student.
    Why is Mentive supporting this course?
    Mentive supports only the most rigorous online courses, for which live interactions with classmates and an experienced mentor would add the highest value for students. Our academic team, led by UC Berkeley Professor Armando Fox, builds a custom curriculum for each course, specifically designed to maximize our students’ chances of passing the course and achieving their learning goals.
