Veritas Press is a company that has worked to create materials suitable for a classical education. Like many publishing companies, they started out of a need they had... create a chronological history program that connected the bible to history not recorded in the bible for their own boys. That needed resonated with other families, and Veritas Press was born. Flash cards came to life in the form of the self-paced courses, first with history, then with bible.
One signs up their student with their own user name and password. This sets the student up with their own dashboard where they can view their courses, grades and what not. You get 128 class periods covering 32 Biblical events, each subscription lasts for a year. All course work is done online and all quizzes and tests are graded automatically.
My son likes doing the maps since they allow him to keep trying until he gets it all right. I like that it forces him to keep trying so he has to remember this important geography. Currently we are reading through a book on Ancient Civilizations and when we are on Israel my son would pop up with "MOM! That town is here and did you know _____________?" As he spills out information he learned through Veritas Press. I LOVE IT! I love how he is learning all this stuff and remembers enough of it to tell me about it. It's great! :)
My laptop is a touch screen which apparently is THE BEST for playing the games.
I've offered to sit with my boy and learn with him, but he has nixed that. "Mom, I like learning it. Then I can tell you later and surprise you with what I know." I do occasionally get called to help him with the odd game though but get told "DON"T answer the questions mom.... I want to!" That speaks volumes to me about how much he likes this online bible curriculum.
