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.

This has been the best purchase, by far, in my homeschool curriculum! My son loves the class. The videos are easy to understand, entertaining and done in a step by step fashion to ensure success. When my son did have trouble, Youth Digital was quick to respond to the email and helped him through. The troubleshooting and reviews at the end of each segment are valuable and check for understanding before moving on to the next lesson. We will definitely continue to look for more DigitalYouth products that interest our family. My younger son h...(more)

My 10 year old son spent every free minute he had on this course. He would get up early so he could work on it before beginning his core classes. Learning to write Java taught him to pay closer attention to details (such as spelling and punctuation). It took him about six weeks to complete the course. He has asked on multiple occasions when he can take another Youth Digital course.

This is a great course - worth the money if you child is interested in coding or modifying mine craft. The video lessons are enough fun that my daughter calls us in to watch the funny parts and will play them multiple time. Their response to questions is 24 hrs max, they only take Sundays off. And my daughter is learning to code in java - she really has a grasp of how changes in one section affect the game and how to find and correct errors. It seems a bit expensive with so many "free options" out there - but the it is organized, progressive...(more)

I can't say enough good things about this course! Obviously, students learn beginning programming skills by editing and changing existing Java code. They learn the logic of programming and the challenge of troubleshooting. But they also learn some excellent applied mathematics! This course capitalizes on kids' love of Minecraft and shows them how necessary some middle school math skills are to design the games they love. It's educational gold!

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.

Mod Design 1 has been a really fun addition to my son's education. He really enjoys the quality video lessons, and the rest of the family find themselves hovering around while he watches. It catches and holds his attention and teaches all the concepts in a very straight forward way. I haven't had to help him at all in the process, so he feels really empowered to be working with all of the technology on his own.

We also really enjoy the creativity you get to have in the whole experience. It is a wide, wide world of possibilities and my...(more)

My 8-year-old son is taking this online class. He is enjoying it tremendously. I sit with him while he works, but for the most part he is picking it up just fine without help from me.

The online instructor, Sean, is great...funny, engaging, and explains things well. The class goes at a good pace. You learn a little, then do a little, then learn a little more. My son was able to start creating a game almost immediately, which makes it really fun.

At one point, we had a problem with the game design software and were stuck. We couldn't ...(more)

My family has enjoyed this educational project. It has been extremely entertaining and the support we have received has been exceptional.
D. Moore, Co-op Member
Our 11 year old son absolutely LOVES this course! I thought he might work through it over the course of a semester. Instead he finished it in about two weeks. But he still has access to all the tools and helps, and continues to use it. When he has had questions, the answers from the tech help side have always been quick and personal. We found this to be a high quality resource that we would definitely recommend. I only wish there was a "Mod Design 2" I could sign him up for!
Don M., Co-op Member
We are so excited about this! My 3rd grader really wanted Minecraft for Christmas. So we made a deal that it would be a gift from Mom & Dad IF he committed to this course. He's already into it and knowing JAVA is a great skill to have in today's digital world.
