What's it all about?

Visual Basic is the most widely used programming language for creating Windows applications. Why? Because it's easy to learn, and doesn't require you to memorise difficult commands like other programming languages. In this course, you'll learn how to write Windows applications and programs using the Visual Basic programming language and the Visual Basic development environment.

Creating a Windows application ordinarily requires you to write lengthy and complex code. But, as you'll see, the Visual Basic development environment relieves you of this task. Instead, it enables you to create the application program and its components literally with the click of a button or menu item. It even writes all of the necessary code to get the application started for you, which you can then view and fine-tune.

Over the course of 12 lessons, you'll learn the building blocks of programming, including using variables to store data, control structures, and loops. You'll find out how to use the large function library built into Visual Basic, including the .NET Framework, as well as how to write and use your own functions. You'll also see how to use Windows' large and varied library of controls and how to access files and handle errors. And since Windows applications are event-driven and everything in Visual Basic is treated as a programmable object, you'll learn about event-driven and object-oriented programming—concepts that are important not just in Visual Basic, but in other programming languages as well.

Courses are delivered to you through expertly executed lessons, online instruction and interaction with like-minded students. Our courses are designed to deliver all of the benefits of studying in a classroom whilst giving you the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit your needs. You can access your classroom 24/7 from any device with an internet connection.

There are no set times for you to study, you can log in and out at any time and complete the course at your own pace. Your expert tutor will guide and facilitate your course, answering any questions you have and providing guidance and feedback. You’ll complete comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments before submitting your final exam at the end of the course to achieve your certificate.
