Rated 3 out of 5 by Valarie messy logistically
The videos are great educational quality. However, navigating the many layers of links and optional resources clutters the my visual experience.
As one would log in a better screen would be the full home page with alert notices in the corner. Duplicate link buttons should be cleared and Moms minutes should be separated for early access.
Thank you for your consideration

Rated 5 out of 5 by 10countrymama Excellent
Excellent teachers on distance learning online, including biblical morals and teaching of the bible. Very good readers, book links and comprehension workbooks. Have loved using this for 3 years:) after some of the immoral nonsense they had in public school our children love reading again!!
Only disappointed being with BJU three years that the DLO promotion is not available and that the videos will only be available in December? That is not going to meet our needs in the future:( We order in may/June and like to start in September with the core subjects. In reading and english, Science, history we take more than 18 months to finish as our children would take too long doing all the subjects every day. We have slowed down and enjoyed the books/videos more, they are a high level of reading, we love the book links too:) So we renew some subjects twice to finish them and spend 2 years with each increasing the cost. This may determine some changes in our choices for next year.
Otherwise would recommend:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweetsavages Enjoying the class
I'm using this for my 7 and 9 yr old daughters. They seem to really enjoy the class. I like that it is only 1 semester long so we aren't tied down to 180 days and can do other things!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Netanya LOVE! But...
I LOVE BJU Distance for learning!!! Although, I would order the physical Teacher's Edition books next time. I also don't like how non-user friendly the Mom log-in things are... I find it difficult to find the suppliment pages - navigation took me a while as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dee708 Very good for a new homeschooling parent
I bought the 3rd grade and Kindergarten curriculum for my kids and bumped my 3rd grader up a year in math. It was a wonderful choice. The videos could be brought into the 21st century, but the teaching is very well done and my kids find it interesting. I especially love the bible class and the memory verses. God and Jesus are incorporated into each subject. As a new homeschooling parent, I feel very confident in the curriculum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyKidsCallMeMom Excellent product!
As a homeschooling mom with four kids, I needed a top notch curriculum that would work for varied age groups and not overwhelm me. BJU Press has provided that blessing.
With my 3rd grade son, I provide simple materials that I can usually find at the grocery store, occasionally clarify instructions or help him know where to find answers to workbook questions, assist on projects (most of which are labeled as OPTIONAL), and grade his work. We use the online option, so nearly everything I need is neatly laid out on the website including daily links to my grading materials. BJU Press makes my part simple. It did take a few weeks to figure out where to find everything, so I gave the 'ease of use' 4 stars. My son requires mild supervision to stay focused. The videos, however, are much more entertaining than listening to me teach the subject matter. We are both very pleased at this point (half way through the curriculum).
I love the piece of mind that my children are receiving an excellent, well-rounded education from fun and knowledgable instructors who love the Lord and love to teach!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tracy Not a favorite.
Too expensive as a single class. Which is a pity because it all we needed. And my son (3rd grade) felt the video presentation was too babyish. We might use these products again for upper grades, but not anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorrie A Solid Math Program
It is a solid, mastery based math program, but also includes problems from previous chapters so that your child doesn't forget what he/she has already learned. The videos are engaging, and the themes for each year add enrichment to the program that you don't often see in other programs. Any instructional video that can make your child laugh out loud while they learn is a winner in my book!
Parents, the DLO version offers you everything you need to teach this subject. Teacher Editions, lesson plans, extra worksheets, and supplemental materials are all included in your "parent portal" online. For those with limited space to homeschool, this is an awesome benefit!
