KidCoder/TeenCoder self-study computer science courses for kids and teens: Beginning Web Design Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Product Description:
The award-winning KidCoder and TeenCoder computer science courses will teach your 4th-12th grade student how to create their own websites, video games, and apps. The self-study curriculum will introduce students to modern, industry-standard technologies like HTML, Java, C#, and Visual Basic. Ideal for homeschool students seeking elective computer credit or any individual student who can't get material like this through their normal school system.

There are 4 independent course tracks that cover different subjects and age ranges as described here:
  • KidCoder: Beginning Web Design (4th-12th grades)
  • KidCoder: Windows Programming (6th-8th grades)
  • TeenCoder: Winodws Programming (9th-12th grades)
  • TeenCoder: Java Programming (9th-12th grades)

KidCoder: Beginning Web Design is the first semester course in the KidCoder Web Design series. 4th–12th grade students will learn to create their own web pages using HTML. Hands-on fun for all students, both young and old!

Some of the topics in this book include web site layout, HTML symbols, text styling, using hyperlinks, navigation bars, simple CSS effects, spacing and positioning, graphics and image editing, tables and more.

Students don't need prior programming or HTML experience. We build all web design skills from the ground up.

My Opinion:
I know these courses are meant for kids and teens and I'm 25 but I really love to learn and thought Beginning Web Design would be a good thing for me to learn. There are 13 chapters in total and every chapter has very fun activities for you to do to make sure you understand everything you have learned so far. Everything is explained and is very simple to understand. I am just starting on Chapter 8 and I am having so much fun doing the activities. Since I have a blog I feel it's kind of important to know a little about web design and also since I sometimes get HTLM to post on my blog I should understand what all the symbols mean. A lot of times I'm that's what that stands for or that's what that does. This course is so easy and I recommend it to anyone that needs or wants to learn about web design.
