I created these courses to provide quality video courses on software, programming, computer graphics, writing, and more. The courses are clean and wholesome, with no objectionable content. That's getting harder to come by in today's world.

Note that the listed prices are for use within a single family. If you'd like to use a course for multiple students in a homeschool group or co-op, please contact me with the number of students, and I'll provide a discount code for each member of the class.
