VeritasBible.com is a fun and engaging program for the entire family! There are currently three courses available on VeritasBible.com and they are: Genesis to Joshua, Judges to Kings, and The Gospels. According to their website two additional courses, Chronicles to Malachi and Job & Acts to Revelation are in the works.
Setting up accounts for my kids was very simple. I entered their name, selected their gender, selected an avatar, and the account was ready to go! Every student account is individual so your children can work independently, at their own pace. You can go back and forth between the three courses however, the lessons in each course must be completed in order. The only time any skipping around is allowed is in sessions that have already been completed. Your students are also free to go through and review the previously completed lessons as many times as they wish.
The lessons can be adapted to any schedule. Every lesson is split up into multiple sections and when you log in the next time you have the option to pick up right where you left off. This makes it easy to find your place should you have to stop in the middle of lesson. There are multiple, professional, videos in every lesson and each one is kept to a couple minutes or less. The videos are engaging and keep the attention of even the younger crowd. For example the lesson will start off with a 2 minute video, followed by another video that is 45 seconds, and then a third that is a little over a minute. Following will be some review questions or new questions, then back to a few more videos. At the end of every lesson there will be a graded worksheet to be completed. Once the worksheet is submitted, it will be graded and you will have an opportunity to print the graded pages for your record. On the printed pages it will record the date, the child’s name, the questions asked, the correct answers, and the answer that was chosen by the student. The passing grade for the graded pages is 70% and the student must earn a star in order to move on to the next lesson.
Initially, I had set up individual accounts for Sweet Pea, Peanut, and Lil’ Bit. However, Peanut and Lil’ Bit preferred to watch the video with Sweet Pea. Since I couldn’t skip past the videos on their accounts so they could do the interactive portion of the lesson they just worked together under Sweet Pea’s account. We started with the Genesis to Joshua course. Peanut and Lil’ Bit enjoyed watching the videos. Sweet Pea said she enjoys all of it, especially the videos. She also mentioned that sometimes she finds it hard but is glad that it is challenging her.
