My twin 14 year old boys are obsessed with Minecraft. They each received this as a Christmas gift. Both of them are really enjoying the course. They really like the instructor, the customer service has been very helpful when they had issues, and we are excited to be able to count this course as an elective for our homeschool. We will definitely finish the course!

My son loves this web class. He loves Minecraft and is learning so much about code. It is a great addition to our homeschool.
Cyntha Holt, Co-op Member
My son loves this program. We had a little trouble at first he didn't like it because he didn't download the program correctly and completely. Once we fixed that eh was able to follow along fairly well. At one point he thought he would do whatever he wanted instead of waiting for instruction and his program didn't work. He is still working on how to fix that. It is good for him to learn how to go back and problem solve- not just follow each step- so I'm letting him work that out.

I haven't tried other products like this, but I do wonde...(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)

My son just loved the program and he was hooked on it. He still works on it but in the beginning he was there constantly and he was raving about it. It's the best product that we have used. I would recommend it to anyone that has children interested in computers and don't know how to engage them in more productive ways of using the computers or games.
Melanie, Co-op Member
Wow, Great class! I purchased this class for my 10 year old son in 5th grade. It is very entertaining, easy to navigate and follow along. I was fraid it would be to difficult for him but it is not. It has been fun to see the pride and excitement he gets from creating his mod. I don't think he even realizes he is learning Java. Would recommend this class for anyone wanting to include Java or programming in their homeschool curriculum. Sarah
Sarah C., Co-op Member
This course was just what we needed! It is both engaging and inspiring for my boys (14 & 15) who already enjoy playing Minecraft, are now in the process of learning how to make modification in game. They are keen on learning more of the coding (as this was primarily an opportunity for them to cut and paste, but still a good chance to learn how JAVA works and the importance of attention to detail and to see how changes they made modified the outcome). Both boys also had an opportunity to interact with the help desk, which was a good experience ...(more)

We purchased this computer course for our 14 year old son. It has been a great tool for him as he creates his own mods and learns java programming. We are very pleased with the way this course is put together and the fun he had in going through it!

Here are his thoughts:

This Mod-Design-1 course is exciting from the very first video! It teaches you how to make everything in Minecraft. It is a little bit difficult at the first step, but as you go deeper into the code, it makes more sense. I have told many of my friends about this course ...(more)
Kim L, Co-op Member
My 8 year old son has enjoyed being able to add 'stuff' into Minecraft. This was very exciting for him. The anticipated frustration has never been a problem, as the code is already written for them, and they just have to alter small sections of it at a time. I would consider this a very gentle introduction to how Java works. For our family, it has been useful to assess whether we want to take programming education further.
Judy N, Co-op Member
This was an awesome course that kept my son engaged from start to finish. The responsiveness of the help desk was top-notch. It took less than 24 hours to get help each time it was needed...no question too small. I only hope they can get their other courses translated to Mac, so we can order more classes! This class was far better than other programming classes we have tried as it is understandable to a 10-year-old boy.

I highly recommend this class to anyone who likes Minecraft and designing your own version.
