I like that there's color and it's not overly boring. Mr. B LOOOOOOOOOOOVES the background of the Earth like it's from the ISS.
Here's a few screenshots of the actual lessons in progress. The lessons are really great. I'm seriously impressed. This is nothing like keyboarding classes I had in school!
I like how it's color coded. This makes it easy for Mr. B to see his errors.
Following the skills check, you can see how you are looking compared to your overall goals. This is great for motivation.
There's also a game section with six games that reinforce your learning.
After completing a game, you earn this little on screen award.
1.) Customization: Is it easily adaptable? Can we customize it to fit “us?” Can we modify or set our own schedule? Can we take breaks, jump ahead, or flat out skip?
You can set your own goals, but that's about as far as the customization goes. You can't really skip, or maybe that's just the way I have our settings. I wouldn't advise skipping lessons since you'll miss something important.
2.) Value: Is it long lasting? Will it cover multiple grade ranges? Are you locked in to one specific grade level? Are there hidden fees?
There are no hidden fees, but you are bound to the time restraints of your subscription. This is good for all ages.
3.) Attention span: Is it boring? Is it engaging? Is it varied enough for
ADHD? Does it last too long?
It's not boring. Once I figured out how to stop the auto-speech, Mr. B was able to hold his attention much better because the lessons moved more quickly.
4.) Does it tie into other things we already have.
