We have used on-line courses with great affect during the school year but we wanted a different flavor this summer. Has anyone tried these or others that they would recommend?

Online courses for kids – I have at least one child (not naming names, ahem) who needs a LOT of structure (it’s the one who asked me, on the day he stayed home sick, “Mom, can we write down a schedule for the day?”). For that reason (not because I’m a mean mom, although I WAS told tonight that I was THE.MEANEST.PERSON.IN.THE.WORLD), I run a pretty strict little summer school program during Joshua’s naptimes. I saw these online courses for kids the other day and will *definitely* be incorporating at least one of them into our “curriculum” – REALLY great ideas here: http://www.designmom.com/2013/05/summer-school-2-0-fun-online-classes-for-kids/ [...]

Can I tell you that I worked so much harder on that class than I thought I would have? I have a second Coursera class lined up for September (on metadata, can you tell what an exciting person I am?) but maybe I’ll hit up a more creative class this summer.

My 9 year old son has been talking making a video game for months now. To be honest, I wasn’t sure where to start but I really wanted to support him, thank goodness for this! :)

I earned my masters online, I’ve also taken several classes online, ranging from knitting, French, Spanish, guitar lessons, song writing… The list goes on! I love the flexibility of online learning. Thanks again!

I already use the Khan Academy with my 9 year old – it’s really great. But he’s been wanting to to learn chess and I think that link you posted will be perfect! And cooking classes for my little girl who loves watching the cooking channel, lol, definitely will try it as well.

We talk about that a lot at our house! I sometimes wonder if my children will have a high school or university experience that resembles my own at all.

There is so much learning available online, and more added every day. I can imagine it won’t be long until a school pieces together a fully accredited university-level degree made up of youtube videos and e-classes.

Sometimes summer means hanging out in the house. And since my kids are going to drawn to screentime anyway, we might as well make a learning time that they’ll look forward to.

Photography and cooking would be neat, too. Another commenter shared Skillshare, which I’d never heard of — very cool!

i teach my online class, {painted pages workshop} , in july so that parents and kiddos can do it together! it’s also good timing for teachers who are off for the summer and want to do something creative on the break.

It sounds similar to Fat Mum Slim’s (http://www.fatmumslim.com.au) Photo a Day Challenge – she makes lists of certain things that you have to try to take a photo of each day of the month. It can be challenging but lots of fun!
