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 is a great product. The boys are thrilled to design and publish their own mod for minecraft. I am thrilled because it is not something that they will never use. It's Java and it is real programming experience, definitely something they will use and build on.

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.
Heather T, Co-op Member
This is an incredible introduction to programming. It tapped into my son's interest in Minecraft and teaches the beginning of Java. It was so engaging that my teenage son would get up early to do the lesson and did not have to be pushed to work on it. The support from Youth Digital was equally incredible. They quickly and patiently answered any question my son had and copied to my email the conversation so I would know what was going on. I have told many of our support group and co-op members and my son is now working the Game Design 1 prog...(more)

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.
YS, Co-op Member
My son is really enjoying Mod-Design-1. He is a 9th grader and I was concerned that it might be to elementary, but it is not. He loves Mine-Craft so he loves learning how to build his own world. He is very excited that he is learning JAVA Script and has already asked if he can do another course once he is finished with this one. Thanks for making these courses available at an affordable price.
Patty, Co-op Member
I purchased this for my 14 year old son. I have been amazed how well the program is laid out. It is entertaining, inspiring, and uses hands on practice to teach each step. There are unit quizzes with prizes (coins, that they spend for upgrades for the games), and continuous points earned as they watch the videos and do the exercises. The teachers are dynamic and quickly answer submitted questions. I highly recommend Youth Digital for learning computer programming!
B. Ringewold, Co-op Member
We absolutely love this! It is just great, the kids have no problems following it (and learning English, which is second language) and learn so much - the course is well designed and the instructor fabulous :-) My kids have really gotten into game designs with this so we're thinking about some of the other courses from YD in the near future. I have told lots of people about it, in our home chooling community and outside it :-)
Sisse H., Co-op Member
This course was amazing! The class is fun and presented in a very upbeat and motivating way. We looked forward to each lesson and learned so much. Built a great understanding of coding in a fun way. Very impressed.
Patti P, Co-op Member
I purchased Mod Design 1 for my son (age 12) a few months ago. We enjoyed watching the videos, many of which were very funny. The course was designed very well and came with everything necessary to program a mod in Java and create the graphics for his new items, food, armor, etc. The course has taught my son valuable programming lessons in areas such as following directions, paying attention to details, and striving for excellence. Even after he packaged up his mod for review (by Youth Digital instructors), he kept adding things to it to make i...(more)

From the student: It is awesome. I love the quick responses when I had a question. Classes were hard at times, but the teachers were very helpful. I would love to take another class like it.

From the parents:Our son thoroughly enjoyed this class. We've never tried anything like this before. For us it was a way to combine his love for video games with something that was educational and challenging. The staff was very helpful and professional along the way. We highly recommend the class.
