We couldn't be happier. My 8 year old loves the Mod Design class from Youth Digital. It's fun and easy to follow. In each section, the info builds slowly from what was in the previous section. The instructors in the videos are fun and engaging. It's the first thing he wants to work on everyday! I don't know of other sources that introduce Java to children my son's age, and the context of minecraft is the perfect way for us.

We were thrilled with the Mod Design program. My 11 year old absolutely loved it! The teacher on the video was funny and kept the interest level high, while at the same time teaching what could be a very tough subject. The set up of the program was very impressive. Everything is included, and all instructions are very, very clear. The program is set up to allow you to work at your own pace, and the team is "on call" for chats or help, if needed. At the end of the course, the instructor plays the Mod that you built, and gives very sincere ...(more)

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!

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.

My son is addicted to Minecraft. It's is a creative game that challenges him to build ever more complex designs from buildings to creatures. As a homeschooler, this program challenges him to create on a whole new level. He learns basic Java language programming to design totally new tools, armor, ores and other things. He then "imports" his new design into the minecraft game on his computer. This program has both engaging lessons and excellent tech support. I highly recommend this program.

My 13 year old son has been using the Mod-Design-1. He said that it is pretty easy to figure out. He likes to use it 2-3 times a week. He does it all by himself!

We absolutely LOVE this class! We have recommended the Mod Design 1 class to people far and wide, including a family at Disney World who stopped to ask us a question.

Justin, the teacher, is passionate, fun & engaging. What better way to learn.

It is well worth the money!

This is, by far, the most successful homeschool product we've purchased. My 12-old son loves it, and it has inspired him to commit to hours of java coding practice without any prompting. In fact, he pleads to do this instead of other schoolwork, and constantly wishes that all of his courses were so well done, motivational and helpful. (He wishes Youth Digital did languages, math and science programs!) He is now able to impress his teachers and friends with his own Minecraft customizations, and feels like he has quickly learned a lot about Jav...(more)

My 10 year old is really having a blast with this program. I love the support. They immediately assist. I will definitely be using Young Digital for future classes.

When my 10-year-old son asked me to purchase this product I was dubious at best. He is very active and nothing that requires him to stay in one place and focus holds his attention for more than a few minutes. However, to my delight, this program has been a huge blessing for us. My son absolutely loves it and sits at the computer for an hour or more at a time, carefully designing each step of his game. This program is engaging and interesting, as well as very educational. My son is excited to share each step of the game he is building with e...(more)
