CompuScholar, Inc and Homeschooling


CompuScholar, Inc.

Hey neighbors!!

Here is our latest homeschool review product from CompuScholar, Inc.  We had the opportunity to try out their Web Design program.  This is an online program, that homeschoolers can really benefit from.  In this digital age, our children need to be able to use a computer, and the more they know the better.  If your child can learn web design now, just imagine what he/she will be able to do in the future.

My daughters do a lot of work on their computers.  Both of my oldest daughters make money this way, so I realize how important a knowledge of technology is.  This Web Design program is so easy to use and learn from.  I actually went through a few of the first couple of lessons myself.  It begins with the basics, explaining HTML or Hyper Text Mark-up Language and what it is used for.  Should your child already have this knowledge, they can easily breeze through and move on to the more technical lessons.

Topics Covered:
  • Basic web site layout
  • HTML5 symbols and elements
  • Text styles
  • Hyperlinks and navigation bars
  • CSS effects, spacing and positioning
  • Graphics and image editing
  • Tables
  • Page design principles
  • Dynamic menus
  • Embedded audio and video
  • JavaScript and jQuery

I love that it starts out describing HTML and the systems it will be used on and how it will appear on each system.  The lessons are taught at a child's level, but the information is what is needed to build an actual website, and your child will have the opportunity to do that as they continue through the course.  They make learning fun.  For example at the end of Chapter One, your child has the opportunity to find a hidden message in the HTML from a site.

Each segment of a lesson begins with a online video class, that shows, as well as describes what they are learning.  Then there is a Text Lesson, where your student will read through the lesson, which covers and reinforces the lesson they just watched.  Next you have the Quiz.  It is a multiple choice system, that can be taken up to 3 times.  During the lessons, there are also activities.  As I mentioned above, one was finding a hidden message in HTML code.

The course is set up for a year, but you can basically move along at your own pace.  As the parent you can pay for the year in advance, or they are now offering monthly payments.  This is a GREAT investment in your child's education.

CompuScholar, Inc, originally called Homeschool Programing offers other courses too.  They have a Digital Savvy course, that basically explains some of today's technology and how it is used.  Another course is Java Programming, which of course as the title says, will cover Java skills.  Any one of these courses should benefit your child and help prepare them for their future, as many jobs require some form of computer skills.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important. If you’re moving abroad soon, or think that it’s something that you’d like to do in the future, then here are ten things that you need to do before you start your new life. 1. Visit The Country Plenty of people move abroad without visiting the country first. Although this is fine to do, as long as you’ve done plenty of research on the country, it makes much more sense to visit the country first. This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
