Rated 5 out of 5 by from Year Three and Beginning 5th Grade Bottom line- Our son is getting a better education through BJU. There are technical issues at times- hard drive failures, scratched DVDs, and small editing mistakes, but over-all we are content. If we would change anything it would be to have no handout. Everything could be in one workbook with the exception of extra practice or extra activity sheets. We like that the quizzes and tests are now in the parent guide. Consolidating the resources makes it easier for us. Thanks for Listening Eric

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good, but Could Be Better In all fairness, I have only scanned through several of the lessons, so I may be missing some things. Overall, I think this program is good. The teacher does a good job of covering the material. The material covered is excellent and age appropriate. The experiments look like fun. I don't really see the need for a career-link at this age, but others may. I think they over-use pictures when they could be doing "virtual field trips" to the various museums and such... for instance: a Dinosaur Museum would have been an awesome add in...or a visit to the Creation Museum. Or, they could show outdoorsy videos with hands on science instead of everything just being in a stark classroom. Previous Science videos have had a "theme" and characters that made it fun. I think that is what makes BJU Distance Learning so awesome! All the wonderful videos, puppets, and fun add ins. All in all it looks like it will be a good, solid science program for my daughter, but could have been better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good But Not As Good as the Old Version We just received this and I have gone over several of the lessons just to see what my daughter will be experiencing in Spelling this year. I was really surprised to find that there were no "fun" elements to Spelling 5. The academics are great, the teacher seems comfortable with the camera and seems to be a really good teacher who enjoys teaching, but she is not overly animated, and there are no fun add ins like the previous version. It is also missing The King's English, which we really like. I think it is still a good program, but I think BJU could have put more effort into making it fun, colorful, and engaging. Any age/grade level will appreciate that. My daughter loved Spelling 4 with Miss Liston and didn't care that it was "outdated." My other children have used Spelling 1 and Spelling 2 and enjoyed them thoroughly. We may not purchase the "new version" Spelling DVDs next year, since they don't do any more than I could do sitting with my child and her Spelling book. The only benefit would be the time saving feature for me. I just wish they hadn't changed things so much when they updated the videos. It was Excellent... now it is just Good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Curriculum and Great Teachers! My daughter used Bible 5 this year and really enjoyed it! Mrs. Overly is a fantastic teacher! I have noticed a trend in the updated videos away from the colorful sets, the puppets, and the video footage and I am quite saddened by it! I understand that they are trying to shorten the lessons, but is that really necessary? If our children attended a "regular" school they would be there from 8am-3pm...why do we expect them to be done in 2 hours?! I am hoping that they do not change much more because the fun "add ins" are the very things that drew our family to BJU Distance Learning! We were looking for something that would be less time consuming for me but still a lot of fun for the children. My children do not complain about the time involved in their video schooling! They LOVE their lessons and their teachers! If the video content must be updated, I hope that the same quality of colorful sets, video clips, and fun puppets or characters will still be a part of the curriculum. I know I am not the only parent who feels this way! I have heard other parents say the same!! If I notice the videos consistently changing for the worse (i.e. just the teacher sitting at a desk with the same background in every subject) I may not purchase the videos in the future. As things are now- we are thrilled!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fourth year with distance learning. This is the 4th year we have used distance learning, and in particular the dvd program. All materials are provided. Some of the lessons have been updated for her 5th grade classes, and we like the checklists that are provided in the updated lessons for students. My student also enjoys the older lessons that have not yet been updated and makes a connection with her video teachers. Every year that we use the program it gets a bit easier for us. We think the instruction and teachers would be hard to beat. I know she is getting an excellent education. Sometimes the lessons are long and we have learned where to cut back a bit to save time. I could never teach all those lessons myself and make them as interesting as the distance learning teachers do. The videos include so much more than just lecturing. There are other "characters" and enrichment-type videos, and activities within the lessons themselves that add experiences that could not be duplicated in a regular classroom. I like that I can be the teacher assistant and not be responsible for the actual teaching & lesson planning. It is all done for you. I just have to organize and record her progress.
