Javascript is the coding language that brings interactivity to web pages. This course will introduce Javascript, what it is, how it's used and how to write simple scripts.

You can introduce the use of Javascript at any age but when it comes to National 4, National 5 and the new Higher Computing science courses there is a greater emphasis and some requirement for pupils to produce and edit simple javascript code.

This course is an excellent starting point for teachers new to Javascript or for those wanting to brush up on their skills.
