Learn programming with Python: Object-oriented programming is a free course in the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) format for students, teachers and anyone interested in the topic of object-oriented programming (OOP). The course provides an overview of some concepts used in object-oriented programming. In this course, code examples in the Python programming language will be shown to illustrate how the presented concepts can be implemented.
This course consists of four lessons that build upon each other and cover the following topics:
In Lesson 1, the basics of object-oriented programming and the key terms will be discussed. The unit will primarily be of a theoretical nature to provide an overview. In the following lessons, the concepts discussed here will be demonstrated in practice.
In Lesson 2, the knowledge gained will be implemented using an example in the Python programming language, focusing specifically on attributes and the constructor.
Lesson 3 covers methods and encapsulation in more detail.
In Lesson 4, we will take a closer look at inheritance and polymorphism.
Graduates of this course gain a basic understanding of the concept of object-oriented programming and are able to implement what they have learned in practice. The knowledge imparted is an excellent starting point for learning further concepts or delving deeper into the ones presented.
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Explain what object-oriented programming is exactly.
- Create classes and objects.
- Use attributes and methods.
- Use encapsulation.
- Apply inheritance.
- With these skills, you will be able to write more complex programs and deepen your programming knowledge further.
