Learn about databases and how to use SQL to search and manipulate data
On this course from the Raspberry Pi Foundation you’ll learn what databases are and why we use them, exploring how to use SQL to search and manipulate data.
Along the way, you’ll learn about primary keys and table relationships, as well as how to create joins to search multiple tables. In the final week, you’ll finish by grouping and looking at exporting data from the database.
Learning about databases and SQL is a key component of GCSE Computer Science, so it’s important for educators, students, and parents alike to feel confident about the subject.
This course is designed for learners who haven’t used or created a database and SQL before but would like to learn how to. This could include teachers delivering lessons at GCSE level or equivalent, as well as students and parents.
Week 1 : What is a database?
Week 2 : SQL
Week 3 : Modifying a database
Hi I am Matt. I love being a Learning Manager for Key Stage 4 at The Raspberry Pi Foundation. I feel privileged to support the computing education community from across the world.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation works to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world, so they are capable of understanding and shaping our increasingly digital world, able to solve the problems that matter to them, and equipped for the jobs of the future.
We provide low-cost, high-performance computers that people use to learn, solve problems and have fun. We provide outreach and education to help more people access computing and digital making. We develop free resources to help people learn about computing and how to make things with computers, and train educators who can guide other people to learn.
FutureLearn is a massive open online course (MOOC) learning platform founded in December 2012.
It is a company launched and wholly owned by The Open University in Milton Keynes, England. It is the first UK-led massive open online course learning platform, and as of March 2015 included 54 UK and international University partners and unlike similar platforms includes four non-university partners: the British Museum, the British Council, the British Library and the National Film and Television School.
