In this online course, students will apply the skills learned in Game Design 1 to create their own RPG video game. Students will dig deeper into object-oriented programming through the use of values, indices, and arrays, which will allow them to save and load games, map coordinates, and more.

Students are taught these programming concepts through our innovative & engaging educational method. What they learn will be reinforced through interactive exercises and quizzes on our unique learning platform.

This class offers new perspectives in design, and students use these new techniques to make more dynamic and challenging games. When finished students can publish and share their games on CDs, jump drives, or online.

My grandson loves this program. He has created a sword to use in Minecraft. The program eases them into learning computer programming in a fun manner. The excitement over creating on the computer is increasing energy with other school tasks. Thank you for this program.

Written by my 11-year-old daughter, who didn't know that this was school and loved doing this on weekends and nights for fun! We have shared this class with homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers alike and will be taking more classes with YouthDigital.

When I started my mod class through YouthDigital, I wasn t sure about it because I thought I was going to have to do a bunch of binary coding. But I was so wrong!

YouthDigital has helped me for almost a month coding my very own mod. They made it so easy and fun to make it exactly the way ...(more)

My daughter took this class recently. She absolutely LOVED it!! The instructor was funny and engaging. The lessons were not complicated. The tech support is awesome! Anytime she didn't understand something, there is the support button, to guide. Each time they looked at her code they found exactly what she did wrong. She couldn't wait to do the class every day. She feels so great having just posted her new mod for all to play. I HIGHLY recommend this class. We are going to try a few more of there offerings as well.

My 9 year old son began Game Design 1 about three months ago. I have been very impressed with the entire experience. He was able to do the online recorded class sessions completely independently, and only required occasional help with his activities. The presenter/teacher is great - enthusiastic, funny, and very specific in all of his instruction. When we did require help, I emailed our questions and received VERY prompt help (often within the hour) from owners Justin and Molly - unbeatable customer service. He has now almost finished Ga...(more)

Mod Design 1 is the third Youth Digital course my 10-year-old son has taken over the past two years (after Game Design 1 and App Design). As always, I was extremely impressed with the quality of the course. Youth Digital courses are the best online classes we've encountered and teach great basic computer/keyboarding skills as well as the specific programming lessons. Courses have a nice progression and are easy for the kids to follow along with independently (a big bonus for homeschool moms!) Technical support is quick and helpful whenever kids...(more)

Youth Digital has been an amazing experience for me. Everything is organized and ready to explore and learn. Whenever I had a problem, they came, fixed it, and gave an amazing service far beyond any other, always with a constant laugh and always with a goal to keep the not-so run of the mill kid (like me) going. The instructors are so funny yet super knowledgeable. I love the possibility in every step, and it always astounds me how non-linear Mod Design is. And with that crucial factor, I am always happy to call Youth Digital a part of my homes...(more)

I bought the mod design 1 class for my 8 yr old son who had been using Minecraft for only 2 months. He had been curious about adding Mods but I had no clue about how to do that. The class is broken up into 12 modules that have several tutorial videos on how to do each step. There are review, troubleshooting challenges and quizzes in each mod. The user can accumulate points towards earning extra codes. My son earned a lightning sword, potion effects and default enchantments. He hopes to earn other odes. The creator, Justin, is hilarious i...(more)

Great product! My 12 and 14 year old boys did it faithfully all summer. I never had to remind them, they begged to have time to mod. I was a programmer before kids and am impressed with the engaging way the kids learned to understand real programming.
JC, Co-op Member
My 12 year old who gripes over any new curriculum, sat down with a silly smile on his face when I introduced him to this Youth Design class. Any free time he has, he is doing this class. Thanks a lot for providing this class!
Ruth L., Co-op Member
We got the Mod Design 1 class for both of my boys. They absolutely love this class. Some days they even do beyond their daily work and keep going. I'm so glad that we were able to get this class through the homeschool buyers co-op! Thanks so much!
