Learning Goals

The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

In Binar courses purpose and goals of the learned content is explained well, and then explored through lectures, case examples and short quizzes, leading to hands-on tasks. In Bootcamps, the facilitators give instructions and encouragement to move forward, and the learners receive feedback on their work. The course requires the learner to absorb knowledge and create projects themselves both alone and in groups, which is an effective way for learning.
The lessons have a good amount of details, without being too long. The self-study modules give the learners a decent foundational understanding of the topic. Live sessions, mentoring and course work in Premium Bootcamps let the learner adapt the knowledge and bring the skills to practice.
Progression in courses is quite linear, which is a justified approach. Each lesson reviews the previous one and summarises the key points at the end. The projects and Challenges done in the Gold and Platinum level of Bootcamp allow more free exploration and application of the topics.
The Bootcamp starts as a completely individual learning experience, which is suitable for observing the lessons. In the Gold and Platinum level there are collaborative tasks, which simulate the real work situation in software industry in a great way. Furthermore, the chat group that students can access can give students the ability to collaborate.

The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.

The syllabus is comprehensive and delves into more complex topics in later modules. Therefore, it allows users to go beyond the basics, at least in terms of theory.
The Challenges allow concrete execution and practice both individually and in groups.
Strong branding and well-presented lessons that use a lot of visuals and explain important concepts step-by-step.

The supported learning goals are identified by matching the product with several relevant curricula descriptions on this subject area. The soft skills are definitions of learning goals most relevant for the 21st century. They are formed by taking a reference from different definitions of 21st century skills and Finnish curriculum.
