In the past, people usually use books as source. But then, internet came, and replaced books. A lot of students now use internet to learn about programming languages. It is called e-learning, they use technology (such as internet) to learn about something. Students don’t have to bring books to the college, they only need a notebook (or netbook) so they can surf online to find about what they need. Textbooks, dictionaries, etc. can be found in the internet. This is why students prefer to choose internet than old books.
There are so many ways we can do to learn programming languages via online. We can easily open a site then we can get informations that we need. And these days, students usually use social networks to learn. But why do they choose social networks?
- We can ask the experts.
Through social networks, we can easily communicate with some people that’s already an expert, without meeting them. We can do this anytime and anywhere.
- Shared links.
From the social networks, we also can find some shared links so we can get some addition informations from it.
- Friend to discuss.
We can virtually meet some friends through social networks and discuss some subjects without physically meeting them.
- Time savings.
We don’t have to waste time to arrange the meetings, we can find our friends that areonline and then we can directly discuss some programming languages.
From the four points above, we can conclude that it is possible to learn programming languages from social networking sites.
