Kimberly says, “Our favorite tool to use in homeschooling that helps us also get hands on is the KidCoder: Web Design Online Course. This is a course for 4th to 12th grade students that helps students learn how to build their own websites. Your kids will learn everything from HTML to graphics. I love everything my kids have learned. I also love the hands-on approach and how they have to get in there and learn.” Read the rest of her review at Natural Beach Living.
Alicia says, “I am loving KidCoder because: I don’t understand this stuff and I don’t have to teach it! This program does it all! It’s a self-study curriculum that does it all for you. This program is complete. I don’t need to download anything else. No textbooks. Nada. KidCoder is a full year’s curriculum, but I could make it stretch longer if I wanted to. It’s adaptable to your needs.” Read more at Learning Well.
Lacey says, “London has been working on KidCoder for the last several months, a few times each week, and has created a website using code and has learned quite a large amount of basic instruction in code. I haven’t helped her at all and if she has needed any help, a quick email has answered any questions.” Read the rest of her review at So Every Day.

(Currently I can make things look pretty and do basic operations, but this is a whole lot more fun.) …I would seriously recommend the course for those who want an in-depth and immersive experience in the origins, history, and techniques of Sun Microsystems’ potent computer language.” Read more of his review at To Sow a Seed.
Melissa says, “This course is recommended for high school students in grades 9-12. I also looked over the course for myself and learned so much. I took a computer programming course in high school but technology has totally changed since my high school days. There are wonderful video tutorials available to walk you through getting started with the course.” Read the rest of her review at Grace Christian Homeschool.
