Before Labor Day weekend, Boclips’ Content team spent the last few weeks of summer rounding out CourseSpark’s newest videos. For the 2022–23 school year, course creators and instructional design teams will find new podcasts and videos on CourseSpark, ranging from ELL for K–12 students to coding for post-traditional learners.

For a look at a few samples of instructional videos added to the platform in August, check out the videos below.

1. TypeScript for Beginners - Introduction - Modules

Packt

Packt has provided a course on Typescript for beginners, available on our platform CourseSpark. In Packt’s words: “TypeScript makes the life of developers easy by simplifying code. It follows programming conventions that make the project easy to understand even for someone from the distributed team who has no prior knowledge. This makes it popular among developers who use JavaScript frameworks, AngularJS, and Vue.js. [Packt videos] will show you how TypeScript provides structures such as Java and Python to make coding easy.”
