I was recently contacted by Youth Digital asking to host a giveaway of their #1 course, Mod Design 1. In the course your child will learn how to make their own modifications (mods) to their PC/Mac version of Minecraft® using Java Programing. This includes swords, block, creature, biomes, and more. The recommended age group for the course is 8-14.
I was very exciting to see that their Mod Design 1 course (aff. Link) is available for the Mac!! If you read my review of the 3D Game Design 1, we used a virtual machine on our iMac for Cody to be able to use the program because we only own Mac computers. Youth Digital left a comment to the review, letting me know they would soon have a version available for the Mac. So I was very happy to see that the Mod Design course is available for Mac and Windows computers!
I can say from experience that the instructors actually interact with the students. Not only do they promptly answer any questions the students might have, but they go above and beyond to help them. For example Cody has been working very hard at creating his own game for a few months, when he finally had it finished he sent it over to his instructor to look at. Not only did the instructor look over his game, he added wonderful things to it that Cody wouldn’t have been able to add.
How do the programs work at Youth Digital? Students follow along on the video lessons, these lessons are not like normal video lessons. They get students working along on the concepts using interactive tasks that teach them the concepts needed. Along the way, students will
- Complete quizzes and earn points that can be used for awards and prizes for use in their program.
- Earn badges showing their accomplishments.
- Complete troubleshooting challenges to help them learn how to fix potential problems that go along with the concepts taught in the lessons.
By the end of the Mod Design 1 course, students will have a fully functional Mod. Your child will design and then code the entire thing using Java Programing!
