Digital Literacy Computer Basics Computer Basics Data

Where are the basics and the instructor that explains things better?

I feel as though the instructor is jumping into things that I know nothing about. Are all the instructors like this? Also, is computer literacy the most beginning couse?

As far as I know, this is the most introductory-level course offered here. It should not require any previous knowledge or experience.

If you have a question related to some specific concept, challenge, or quiz, try asking it here.

If you have issues with the course itself, try writing to Treehouse Support.

Everything Steven said is spot on. If you are feeling like instructors are jumping into things that you don't know yet, don't worry! This may happen frequently when learning to code. The Treehouse community here is great when it comes to breaking things down to fellow students who are stuck. Also try and view these times as an opportunity to dig further into what they're talking about and do your own research. If a teacher mentions something you don't know, take a note of it and google it to learn more about it.

While online coding schools and tutorials are great, they aren't always a one stop shop for learning every little thing there is to learn. Sometimes if I find I don't understand what a teacher is talking about, I'll look it up elsewhere, read a blog post, or listen to a podcast to hear it explained in a different way and wording. I can't tell you how much that has helped me. Hopefully it will help you too!! Happy coding!
