As a premier Columbian Cultural Center of higher education, the InglesAgil's wide spectrum of facilities and programs create a rich environment for learning and discovery. But those places are also great public resources. Open to children and adults around the country, the RecStay Cali Columbia Cultural Campus is a great place to find a book, look at art, walk in the garden, explore the mysteries of the deep blue sea of investigative knowledge or gaze at the stars millions of miles away.

6.00x: Introduction to Computer Science and ProgrammingMITx


About 6.00x

Introduction to Computer Science and Programming
6.00x is an introduction to using computation to solve real problems. The course is aimed at students with little or no prior programming experience who have a desire (or at least a need) to understand computational approaches to problem solving. Some of the people taking the course will use it as a stepping stone to more advanced computer science courses, but for many, it will be their first and last computer science course.
Since the course will be the only formal computer science course many of the students take, we have chosen to focus on breadth rather than depth. The goal is to provide students with a brief introduction to many topics so they will have an idea of what is possible when they need to think about how to use computation to accomplish some goal later in their career. That said, it is not a "computation appreciation" course. It is a challenging and rigorous course in which the students spend a lot of time and effort learning to bend the computer to their will.
Those who earn a passing grade will get an honor code certificate from MITx. Please see the edX FAQ for more information about certificates.
A textbook for 6.00x is now available for purchase ($24.99) - expect the book to take at least 10 days to arrive (North America; rest of the world may take longer). The book and the course lectures parallel each other, though there is more detail in the book about some topics. The book is NOT required. We will not be referring to it in assignments or depending upon it to cover holes in the lectures. If you choose not to purchase this book, you will probably find it useful to buy or borrow another book that covers Python - you might check your local public library's resources, or search online for a free Python text, such as this one.


High school algebra and a reasonable aptitude for mathematics.

Chris received his BA in Physics from Wesleyan University and headed to MIT for graduate school in 1973. He completed his MS, EE and PhD degrees in Computer Science and Engineering and subsequently joined the MIT EECS faculty. Chris escaped from MIT in 1985 and was a cofounder of several firms, including Symbolics Inc. (manufacturer of Lisp Machines), TLW Inc. (VLSI designs for communications and multimedia), and Curl Co. (software technology for the Web). He returned to MIT in 1995 and subsequently participated in the design of the Ray and Maria Stata Center, CSAIL's home, and has served as Associate Director and later Co-Director of CSAIL.

Eric Grimson

A member of the MIT faculty since 1984, Professor Grimson previously served as head of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, as its associate department head, and as its education officer. Professor Grimson is internationally recognized for his research in computer vision, especially in applications in medical image analysis. He and his students have developed techniques for activity and behavior recognition, object and person recognition, image database indexing, image guided surgery, site modeling, and many other areas of computer vision.
Professor Grimson has been actively engaged with students throughout his career. For 25 years he lectured subject 6.001 Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, and is now engaged in teaching 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming and 6.01 Introduction to EECS. He has also taught undergraduate subjects in computer architecture, software engineering, and signal processing. In all, Professor Grimson has taught more than 10,000 MIT undergraduates and served as the thesis supervisor to almost 50 MIT PhDs.
Professor Grimson is a native of Saskatchewan, Canada. He received the BSc (Hons) degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Regina in 1975 and his PhD in mathematics in 1980 from MIT. He is a recipient of the Bose Award for Excellence in Teaching in the School of Engineering at MIT. He is a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) and a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).


Frequently Asked Questions

What type of computing environment do I need for this course?

You need to have a computer running one of the following operating systems:
  • Microsoft Windows, version XP or greater (XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7)
  • Apple OSX, version 10.2 or greater
  • Linux - most distributions that have been released within the past two years should work
In addition, you will need the ability to download, install, and run software on your computer.

What is the format of the class?

The class will consist of lecture videos, which are broken into small chunks, usually between eight and twelve minutes each. Some of these may contain integrated "check-yourself" questions. There will also be programming assignments and standalone exams/quizzes, which are not part of the video lectures.

How can I learn more about the course content?

Please watch the video on this page that we recorded especially for this offering of the course.

Will the text of the lectures be available?

Yes, transcripts of the course will be made available.

Do I need to watch the lectures live?

No. You can watch the lectures at your leisure - you do not need to watch the lectures at any set time.

How much does it cost to take the course?

Nothing: the course is free. The recommended textbook is not free However, this textbook is not required. Please see the top of this page, under the section "About 6.00X", for more information about the textbook.

Will certificates be awarded?

Yes. Online learners who achieve a passing grade in a course can earn a certificate of mastery. These certificates will indicate you have successfully completed the course, but will not include a specific grade. Certificates will be issued by edX under the name of either HarvardX, MITx or BerkeleyX, designating the institution from which the course originated. For the courses in Fall 2012, honor code certificates will be free.

What programming language(s) will this course use?

6.00x will be using the Python programming language, version 2.7. You are not expected to have any prior programming knowledge - this course is intended for students who have little to no experience with any programming language.

Is there a syllabus available?

Yes. A syllabus is available here. Additional information about the course will be posted when the course starts, on October 1st.
If you have any questions about edX generally, please see the edX FAQ.
If you have any further questions about 6.00x that are not answered in this or the edX FAQ, please email

Instructor Led Classroom Training RecStay classes are more then just dynamic, engaging and incorporate practical examples demonstrating how the techniques the trainee is learning can be implemented into their work immediately. Course material covers the range from beginner to advanced. Class length is 6-7 hours, depending on the subject and level. At the end of the day the trainee has been introduced to a good number of concepts and tools and has had the opportunity to practice them during the class. The instructor for all classes, has experience as a trainer. He has trained in a wide variety of settings, from high-tech training rooms to the factory floor. He has rolled out software to large companies, projects spanning several years, as well as smaller firms and shorter engagements. His training style is such that he engages the trainee right from the beginning and keeps the pace lively during the entire class. He takes "what if" questions as they come and goes "off book" if the need arises, modifying the material to fit the classes' needs. Along with group classes, one on one training is available. For a complete listing of course descriptions contact Fernando IX for additional information along with a fee schedule. Customized Training We will take a course and modify it to cover the topics and type of data particular to your business or current needs. With this you receive a course that is tailored to you, your company or employees. We can also take material from several different topics and merge them into one course. This works very well with power users or those working to solve a specific problem.
