Prepare Your Kids For the Future

I LOVE playing around with my blog’s themes. If you have followed me long enough then you know up front that you may come here one day and see it look one way, and then in the middle of the night I may have changed it around to a totally different look on you. I have learned a LOT about web design through the years on my own as a result. Shoot, I was more into my husband’s web design classes than he was because it intrigued me to pieces!

As a homeschool mother, I know the value that the online world has made in our lives. I have personally earned my associates degree online and if I could get someone to pay for my last 8 classes for my bachelors project management degree I’d finish that out too. (I said find someone to pay for it because at the rate things are going it’s hard as hang to pay the bills we HAVE to pay each month right now, let alone coming up with the funds to finish college right now.) Del completed his classes online. Our kids currently go to an online public school (Hence why, the Internet is such a vital part of our lives!)

When Webucator reached out to me about sharing their new program with you, I jumped at it because it is a program that is truly amazing! They have set up providing classes online for preparing others for the way things are done now and in the future. I sincerely believe that before my kids are done with high school, the world as we know it is going to be totally changed!

I have seen more and more companies shutting down their brick and mortar stores and gone to doing their businesses completely online. Honestly, I don’t blame them one bit for doing that. Even Sears has order online and drive thru and pick up your order. This has become common with many businesses.

Some of the courses you can find on Webucator include Business Management, CSS, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and many more. As you can see from the image, there is almost something for everyone in your family. They are very easy self-paced courses to take. They are very well broken down with all the software you need to learn the materials. I think this program is such a great way to help prepare our kids for the future.

Webucator would love to extend to my readers the chance to take these classes for free. In order to do that you need to order your course and enter the coupon code: HOMESCHOOL. Please be beware that if you do get these courses for free there is no support to help you if you run into issues. However, from what I’ve seen it’s not overly hard to use and they have their system working pretty well.

You can find out more information about Webucator by visiting their website. You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google +.

What course would you use?

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny. Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.

  1. I know how to do a lot of those things thanks to my husband 😉 But CSS is one that I don’t have in depth knowledge of so that would probably appeal to me the most.

    • I’ve noticed that whatever class they give you, you also get the required software you need to complete the class too (even if it’s just trial period long enough for you to do the class.)

  2. I am amazed at how many places are going online. When it comes to school, I actually do really well with online classes. Sometimes I wish I had time to go back and get my 4-year degree in Biology, but there just isn’t enough time or money. I love that you gave some resources that people can use!

    • I totally agree with you that there are a lot of things available online now that wasn’t available many years ago.
      As the old saying goes, we make time for the things in life that we really want to do. Maybe one day when your kids are older you can pursue your Biology degree. I personally struggled big time in that subject so my hat goes off to you for wanting to learn that topic.

    • I was quite impressed with the site and all it had to offer. Thank you for the invite to the Blog Hop. I love Blog Hops. I haven’t been able to visit them that much this week because things have been super duper crazy here! I feel like I don’t know if I’m coming or going. However, that’s also when I know we are actually living life to the fullest, if you know what I mean.

    • That would be like heaven for you. My husband took some Photoshop classes in college, but I personally couldn’t grasp my head around it because I was only getting little bits and pieces of the lessons.

  3. Never heard of this before. It’s really interesting. I would take the javascript and things to help me with my website. I want to be like you and fiddle with things in the middle of the night.

    • I honestly spend to much time learning things that really aren’t going to make me grow worth a hill of beans. I really should be taking that time making more quality content!

  4. I used to dabble a lot in web design before turning one of my web-sites into a blog. I haven’t done so much now since I’m always afraid that my blog will go to kaput, especially with WordPress! I possibly wouldn’t mind taking a course on the web design in the future, though. I’d also love to take a photography course.
