    This unique add-on to the TeenCoder material books is designed for Android programming. Designed to be the second semester of Java programming, this book covers Android programming from managing screen layouts to creating applications. One of the best things about this kit is you don't even need an Android to learn the material; all you need is the simulator and you can run it on a Windows or Mac! ~ Stephen

    If you're looking for specific Java programming knowledge, this book is a good choice. No previous knowledge of programming is necessary. Within, you'll learn all about Java basics. Topics such as creating graphical applications, object-oriented programming, and much more are covered. This is the first semester course of a two-part programming kit, (Android programming being the second), and can be used for the AP Computer Science A exam. The website even has a page for test preparation using the Java programming course. The software is compatible with both Windows and Mac. ~ Stephen

    This online course combines the previously published TeenCoder Windows Programming and Game Programming into a single year-long online course. In this course, you will start by creating text buttons, simple loops, methods, calculators, and many other underlying features. Then, your programming will evolve to include strings, more complex methods, songs, etc. In Game Programming, you start delving into more what you’re looking for. In the beginning, just like Windows Programming, your games will include simple graphics and colors. As you learn more, it will make use of physics, rotation, animation, and more complicated graphics.

    When you purchase an online course, you will receive one pair of teacher/student coupon codes, which you can then activate on CompuScholar (please note that one-year subscriptions start when course is activated). Each course is designed to be used with one student. Additional student licenses may be purchased directly from CompuScholar after the initial course code has been activated. See individual course descriptions for specific system requirements.

    System requirements: Windows 7/8/10 or Mac OS 10.7 or higher.

    This course combines Windows Programming and KidCoder Game Programming into a single year-long online course. Windows Programming starts off simply as you would expect, and is very accommodating to young programmers. You will start with text buttons and options, "if" statements, and variables. Once the book guides you through foundational ideas, you begin to create programs featuring user input, strings, loops, and more. This might seem boring at first, but you will need these skills in order to program the things you REALLY want in the second semester, Game Programming. It also starts off simply, focusing on screen design, calculations, and many functions you will continually use. Once you have a grasp of these, you will learn how to use animation, Artificial Intelligence, and many game functions (such as saving).

    The cool thing about web design is that it is handy skill regardless of your child’s future career path. Whether they start their own business or work for a Fortune 500 company, a firm grasp of web programming and design is sure to give them an edge over individuals who do not.  This course, from the folks at Homeschool Programming, was created for students starting from the ground up and will give them a good knowledge of HTML, XHTML, HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. It contains two courses (Beginning & Advanced Web Design), and combines them into a single year-long online course.

    As someone who has learned the basics of HTML, I appreciate that Beginning Web Design starts with the very basics. The student will learn what the internet is, how it works, and how URLs, mark-up language, and browsers function. Chapter lessons provide a lot of information, although it is very readable, friendly and is accompanied by screen-shots, tables, and graphics. Eager fingers will then hit the keyboard with the “Work with Me” step-by-step assignments and “Your Turn” activities which reinforce the information in the lesson. In a truly hands-on approach, students start on their first web site by the end of Chapter 3! As students progress, they apply the concepts they have learned to this ever-developing example web site featuring birds of prey. By the end of Beginning Web Design, they’ll be ready to jump the nest themselves, creating their own website (on a topic of their choice) for the final project. Don’t let the “Advanced” title on the second course scare you – it’s just the next step. Chapter One starts with a quick refresher on HTML and CSS, then it’s off to HTML5, headers and footers, adding video and audio content, learning CSS3, relationship selectors, dynamic menus, JavaScript, and dynamic pages all while building a website on sea creatures. Wow, at this point, I really want to use this course! It looks so approachable compared to the other basic web design books gathering dust on my shelf! Although there’s not much competition (that I am aware of) in homeschool web design courses, this one is a solid choice whether your student is naturally tech-savvy or not. – Jess

    From the creators of the KidCoder and TeenCoder series comes this ultimate course in digital literacy! The goal of the program is to help middle-to-high-school students develop a foundational understanding of hardware, software, file management, Internet safety, and more. The course is divided into two semesters (about 33 weeks) of material; the first covers basic concepts, including an introduction to types of hardware, software, and popular programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, Google Docs, and more. The second semester delves into more hands-on topics which include social media programs, basic Internet utilities, designing web pages, and creating simple programs.

    At the heart of the course is a simple online interface which tracks student progress and helps organize teachers. Two online access codes are sent out with each copy of the product: one for the student, and one for the teacher. The students have access to several tools for each lesson: Lesson Video, Text, and Quiz. The videos are key to understanding topics and are both animated and narrated to help both visual learners and students learning English as a second language. The automated quizzes ensure students have a good grasp of each concept before moving on and are automatically scored for every student and sent to the teacher for review. Teachers likewise have access to a Teacher Guide, a Quiz Answer Key, and Activity Solution Guides / Files, in addition to syllabi, activity overviews, and chapter walkthroughs. These resources are provided at the teacher's leisureeach can be used by itself, left alone if deemed unnecessary, or integrated with the teacher's own supplementary material.

    The full range of topics covered includes: Fundamentals of Computer Hardware / Software, Operating Systems, Computer Files, Computer Maintenance and Troubleshooting, Computer Networks, Search Engines, Computer Security, Word Processing, Spreadsheet Programs, Presentation Programs, Database Technology, Project Management, Digital Images, Internet Communications, Social Media, Creating Web Pages, Programming Concepts, Digital Logic, and Careers and Professional Skills.

    The course caters to group teaching as well; the online software allows teachers to track each student's scores and progress individually. The program is also age-friendly, allowing multiple students of different middle-and-high-school ages to work together as one class. In addition, it is a moderately fast-paced coursethe stated average workload amounts to roughly 3-5 hours of work per week over 33 weeks, but if this is too rigorous for students or you have younger kids in the class, the course is designed to be self-paced. If you are looking for a full-blown course on digital literacy that caters to a wide range of students, this is certainly one of the best! System requirements: Windows 7/8/10 or Mac OS 10.7 or higher. ~ Stephen

    Note: Requires a laptop or desktop with an internet connection and Microsoft Office (latest version recommended).
