"I have taken every online Minecraft Modding course and CodaKid is by far the best. Their online teacher support is awesome and I really learned how to code with Java."
- Andrew B., Age 13, 8/15/16
"CodaKid courses are perfect for homeschooling. They spend time to explain key coding concepts and the projects are fun and entertaining. I like that my son is using real programming tools and learning real Java coding whereas before he was just using drag and drop tools. I believe that CodaKid provides real educational value and skills for the future."

I've had people tell me our 13 year old autistic son might enjoy minecraft, especially if he can create worlds of his own (he's nuts about dinosaurs and computers). Would he be able to create a dinosaur world of his own? I've read that the actual Minecraft game/program is NOT included. Does this mean it isn't necessary to own the game/program to use the course? After all, it's pretty expensive. Having to purchase an additional game/program to do the course is a little much, isn't it? If you are required to additionally purchase the game/program, where do I find it and how much is it?

It is not necessary to buy Minecraft in order to take and enjoy our course. We don't create dinosaurs in our online course, but we do create a number of other really cool things. We teach how to make dinosaurs and other creatures in our academy, and we will definitely try to include some of these modules in some upcoming online courses. Our course is a great way to provide coding instruction in a very creative setting. Our students actually write real software and feel a sense of pride upon completing oiur projects. We provide very responsive support from friendly teachers, and we have taught many students on the spectrum.
While it is not necessary to own, Minecraft is a great game and there are benefits to having it. The PC or Mac version of the game costs around $27 dollars last time I checked. If you do purchase the game, feel free to drop us a note at [email protected] and we'll send you some instructions on how to download some free dinosaur mods that I'm sure your son would enjoy.
If you have further questions please feel free to write ot call!

So I am 14 years old and I absolutely love Mine Craft. But I was wondering: will this help us to create our own mods in ANY way that we want? I am 14 on Friday and I am going to have my own server soon but first I am going to want to make my own medieval mods (it is a Medieval Server). I just want to know if this will go over all possible mod creations or will it just teach us how to do certain code according to what the lesson it telling us to do? Thanks - Spencealot/Spencer

This course is designed for beginners to start into the world of coding with Java and within Minecraft. This will help with learning the basics of coding such as conditionals, loops, and arrays. This course does this by making swords, blocks, and biomes. Once you have these nailed down, you can easily add new things based on these. For example, once you know how to make a sword, you can apply that knowledge to make a mace! However, this course only goes over how to make a single player mod. Multiplayer mods require additional code that this course does not cover. We are planning to release a video on making mods multiplayer in the future.

I have several questions, 1) Does this course teach how to write Minecraft plugins?
2) After 1 yr is over what can my san do with this program
3) I am not too computer/tech savy, I read that Java is outdated, I really don't even know what Java is, is there an updated version of this ?
Asked by a Parent on November 9th, 2016
Greetings! Thanks for writing! Here are answers to your questions! 1. No, we teach students how to modify the source code of Minecraft (which is written in Java). In doing so, kids learn important coding concepts such booleans, conditionals, loops, variables and more, while learning the skills required to become independent coders. 2. After 1 year is over, your son can still use all of the the tools and make modifications on his own 3. Java remains one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Most importantly it is the language of Minecraft and provides students who are fans of the game that extra incentive to power through and learn a real programming language.

Do the kids get to keep the Eclipse software and Paint/Pinta software once the course is over so they can continue to program?
Asked by a Homeschooler and Parent on November 6th, 2016
Thanks for writing. Yes they do!
Answered by CodaKid - Online Kids Coding and Game Design Courses on November 7th, 2016
Can this be moved to a new computer after it's downloaded or does the child need to use the same computer the whole time?
Asked by a Homeschooler and Parent on November 1st, 2016
Greetings! Thanks for writing! You can copy source files to another computer. Our support team can walk you through how to do this - it's quite easy!

My child LOVES minecraft and this product was a great addition to our summer schooling. He learned how to code, made something that was useful, and had a blast doing it. I don't think I could ask for anything more.

Also included, online access to their support team of engineers
Kids learn Java coding - they learn REAL coding
Mods can be shared with friends (and uncles!)
