Overview
Learn what a Graphical User Interface is and write your own GUI-based applications with this practical course for teachers.
Course Description

Gain hands-on experience building your own interface

Discover how to build your own Graphical User Interface (GUI) with guizero. On this course supported by Google, you will learn how to incorporate more interactivity in your program. You will experiment with different types of widgets and build the confidence to design more complex GUI-based apps in the future.

You will have the opportunity to put what you’ve learnt to practice using the guizero library. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to produce applications with interactive elements such as buttons and text boxes.

This course is designed for teachers delivering computer science lessons at GCSE level or equivalent. It’s aimed at teachers who have basic experience with Python. If you don’t have much experience with Python, perhaps complete Programming 101: An Introduction to Python for Educators first.
