CompuScholar, Inc. Online Web Design Class Review

26

In the society that we live in it’s become abundantly clear that our kids need to know as much as they can about technology. Since I’m a blogger, I have been trying desperately to get my boys interested in doing web design. Thanks to the Homeschool Review Crew we were given a chance to review the Web Design course from CompuScholar, Inc.

My Review

I let Delbert, my fourth-grader, take this course since he showed more interest in doing this than my seventh-grader. Plus, I figured due to the things I’ve already taught him to do he’d be able to handle this course. The only concern I had was that his attention span issue would get in his way regardless who taught him web design.

I took some of the lessons within this online web design course to get a feel for how it works for the review. I have to say that this class is broken down in easy to follow sections. The lessons take about 20 minutes each. As a mother to a child who doesn’t stay focused for long unless he’s physically active, this is of vital importance.

Each lesson has a lesson video, reading text, and lesson quiz. The activity sections give you detailed instructions. Plus, a section to submit your activities. Then there is a chapter exam to ensure your child has learned everything.

Delbert stated that it gives you strong details on how to do web design. He likes it because it’s fairly simple to follow along. He loves the fact that when he’s done that he’ll be able to put his creative skills to use. He did have to do some chapters over repeatedly due to not getting all the details right the first time around. As anyone who has ever tried to design a website will tell you if you miss one bit of coding it can through the whole project off track. There were a few times that he had to find his errors, and that took a bit of time.

As a homeschooler, I liked this course. It covers the major aspects of web design. There are twenty-eight chapters and even supplemental lessons and projects. I think that they are charging a reasonable price (if not undercharging) for this course.

  1. Today’s online certification in Web Design is a rare breed. In our increasingly global, tech-driven economy, however, demand for that breed is rising. Data for a total of 29 web design certifications show that online certification programs are still young, with only 10 programs qualifying as fully online. But as credible and usually accredited alternatives to Web Design bootcamps—which tend to require on-site training at private companies but offer no certification—the fully online certificate program in web design will become an increasingly popular route to go, especially as university-sponsored web design programs grow, and federal funding becomes more viable for non-traditional career pathways.

    • I agree completely that it’s quite important for us to teach our kids as much about computers and technology as we can since we are surrounded by it EVERYWHERE.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • I struggle with it too. I am going to take this class too because it covers so many aspects that will help a blogger out for sure.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

    • There are many different areas of technology. It’s amazing how each aspect is closely related, but yet are used for totally different things.

  3. This looks like a great course and affordable too.My daughter is only 5 years old .But she is interested in computers and everything related .so maybe for her

    • I think you’d have to help her quite a bit, but kids tend to learn things quicker than we may give them credit for. I know my daughter, who is also 5, learns things that I never dreamed she could.

    • These courses are strong enough that it would be worth it for an adult to take them too. (At least that has been my experience with the Web Design one.)
