We've really enjoyed Homeschool Programming for my son. He LOVED KidCoder VB and KidCoder Game Programming. As a computer programmer myself, I have found the curriculum fairly solid and been able to also show a bit of my day to my son. However, the greatest part of all is when I see how excited my son gets and would say, "Mom, look at what I did! I figured it out!"

My son is also on the Autism spectrum with a current diagnosis of PDD-NOS. He also does not have a high IQ as result of some of his learning disabilities. I include this becaus...(more)

My daughter is really enjoying this program and learning a lot from it.

We do the kidcoder Web design (basic + advanced). My 8th grader loves this class! I take it along with her. She programming on a windows laptop and I program on an Apple laptop and we switch off on occasion to make sure the we learn both operating systems. The pace is slow enough for much younger kids---my 12 year old does a chapter a day sometimes instead of just one lesson. We plan to do the game design program next and after than do the Java one as it says that it will prepare her for the Computer AP test. I have never programmed before...(more)

My 14 year old son loves it! He is always so excited and proud to show me what he has done!

We have started using Kid-Coder Windows Programming with a 10yo and 13yo. The manuals appear to be written so that the kids can understand and follow them independently. Each chapter is broken down into several shorter lessons. I have very little knowledge of computer programming, and wanted something they could do on their own. So far, this product fits the bill.

I would highly recommend CompuScholar for learning web design. I saw the free summer offer and decided to check it out. I took the course myself, well part of it, it is a two semester course. There are 27 chapters (I think), each chapter has 3-5 lessons. Each lesson has a video, a written part, and a quiz. Each chapter also has an activity and an exam. The lessons were interesting, bite size, and easy to understand. Even though I only got through the first semester I did skim the rest and I learned a lot. I don't have any kids interested in com...(more)

My daughter was very interested in computer programming and I couldn't teach her about it. Through the Buyer's Co-op, we heard about this program (made for and by homeschoolers!) that she could use without me knowing anything about the subject. She loves it and is almost through with the first course, even working during her vacation "for fun"! We recommended it to another family, who purchased it already, and we are both anxiously awaiting the next course's release (Game Programming).

CompuScholar was the perfect basic computer class for our son. Son #2 starts it today.

We are a very low tech family and I thought this would help my kids learn more about computers and maybe even become interested in a career in tech. This was very difficult for us to begin with. We couldn't figure out how to use it, we may have actually been missing some software (software you are supposed to download or have, not something that was not included by the designer). I forced my 11 and 9 year old to spend 30 minutes a day anyway, learning the different computer terms. They kept saying they didn't understand it and didn't enjoy ...(more)

I purchased the teen coder version and the kid coder version of Windows Programming for my kids. They are both enjoying the class and learning how to program in Windows. They are mostly able to work independently, but sometimes when they are completing the project at the end of the chapter, they need a little help. The one time I needed to contact customer service, they were quick and helpful with their reply.
