Simply Coding - Crew Review


Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

Simply Coding is a self-paced interactive online curriculum that teaches youth how to code their own websites through step-by-step written tutorials and video instructions. For this review, I was given access to the Coding for Kids Annual Membership. My daughter has no interest in coding, so I was asked to write an informational review of Simply Coding.

I received step-by-step instructions to create the parent account and student account through email and video. Once this was set up, I could click “My Courses” to begin the self-paced lessons. Each lesson is broken down into multiple slides. After working through these slides, students upload their reference and then take the lesson quiz.

Lessons 1-8 teach students how to create their very own website. Throughout these lessons, students learn about the following concepts –

·         HTML tags (header, footer, audio, video) and how to use them

·         CSS (inline, internal and external style sheets)

·         JavaScript (working with trivia questions)

Lessons 9-19 teach students how to create a mobile friendly website. Throughout these lessons, students learn about the following concepts –

·         Bootstrap framework

·         JavaScript (working with statements, loops, arrays, and objects)

·         Comment Form (creating the form for others to leave comments)

·         Controlling the Form (students make sure everything gets filled out correctly then post a comment)

Simply Coding is an interactive online curriculum for ages six and older. The course provides a cumulative learning experience with simplified instruction, and keeps students engaged in the learning process. If you have a student interested in coding, then Simply Coding is the program for you! Visit the Crew Blog to read more reviews from the Homeschool Review Crew.
