My 11-year-old twins completed the Web Design course this summer. It took them step-by-step through the process of putting together a website. They were inspired and motivated to complete the course even outside of our normal school year.

The videos explained the process very well. Readings reiterated the concepts in the videos and went a little deeper into the material. Quizzes ensured they understood each lesson, and projects helped them develop confidence and independence. When we did have trouble figuring things out, customer ser...(more)

The first time my daughter used materials from CompuScholar is when I purchased from the website itself (printed books and DVDs under the label Homeschool Programming). I was happy with what she learned then. However, the online version (CompuScholar) offered us way more convenience and activities. I especially appreciated the fact that quizzes were included along with activities in every lesson set. I will definitely continue my child's journey towards learning how to code through the CompuScholar series.

My son has loved using this program. He'll spend hours at a time working on it. It's challenging enough to require him to use some deep thinking, but not so difficult as to discourage him. He says he's definitely learning a lot, and that makes us both happy!
Arlene S., Co-op Member
We ordered Digital Savvy for my kids. They are close in age, but differ greatly as to their level of computer knowledge. I wanted to introduce the youngest to basic computer skills and I wanted to fill in gaps for the oldest, with my middle child somewhere in between. The course is doing just that. It's excellent. I bump up the projects for the oldest and help the youngest through them. All of them are learning, and we have even had a few of those "a-ha" moments that have led us into further discussion. It's well laid out and very compre...(more)

I am absolutely thrilled that my 10 yr old son is able to learn how to build a professional looking website. This is a good way for him to learn and gain skills that are marketable. most of all I love that he can do this independently
Dian E, Co-op Member
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)

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)

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)

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.
Joanna B, Co-op Member
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).
