Free Online Software & Web Development Courses for Homeschoolers

In today’s society, our children really need to have computer skills.  Thankfully, with all of the electronics and computer work our children utilize in school already, they are light years ahead of most adults who grew up without access to computer technology.  Looking towards the future, some of the fastest growing employment fields out there are tech related.

Give your children a head start with online software and web development courses.  And, if that comes in the form of FREE for homeschoolers, then hooray!  Let me introduce you to Webucator…

Free Online Courses for Homeschoolers | The Happy Housewife

From the CEO of Webucator:

As CEO of a training company, I think a lot about learning, which has a great deal to do with the decision my wife and I made to homeschool our daughter starting in the fall of 2014, when she starts 7th grade. To prepare for this endeavor I have spent a lot of time looking at the materials available online for free, and I have found an incredible amount of great content.

However, I could not find great free online software and web development courses. As Webucator specializes in this kind of training in the corporate world, I know how valuable these skills are. So, we have decided to make all of our self-paced courses available for free to homeschoolers. This includes courses on web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc), Photoshop, Dreamweaver and many others.

Did you catch that?!  They are offering FREE ecourses for homeschoolers covering online software and web development training!  This is perfect for our middle and high schoolers.  Keep in mind that these courses are self-paced and are not going to have colorful cartoon-y graphics.  They are written for adults, but are easily understood by focused older homeschoolers.

All of the content is delivered online using videos, readings, quizzes and exercises.

To register for a course, all you need to do is:

  1. Go to the Self-paced Courses page.
  2. Browse through the courses.
  3. Click the Order Now button next to the course.
  4. Enter HOMESCHOOL for the Coupon Code and click Validate Coupon.
  5. Complete the registration.

You can sign up for as many of the courses as you’d like, and the company has assured me that they are keeping them free for homeschoolers indefinitely!

    How will they assure that only homeschoolers will use the HOMESCHOOL code? These classes are quite expensive and it seems that if the word got out it would be easy for anyone to use the code? I would love to try the photoshop class myself… (homeschool mom of soon to be 6 here)
