Review: Self Paced Bible from Veritas Press

Veritas Press Logo_zpscccfxnibRecently our family has had the opportunity to review a new course!  It is the Self-Paced Bible from Veritas Press.  Oh how excited my kids are!  We’ve been big fans of the Veritas Press self-paced courses for a couple of years now.  They are always so much fun for my boys and incredibly in-depth.  Our expectations for this course were high and we couldn’t wait for the review to begin so we could dig in.  We were fortunate to get access to Old Testament 1: Genesis to Joshua which is a full year course.  Other Self-Paced Bible course currently available are Old Testament 2: Judges to Kings and New Testament 1: The Gospels.

We were so exited to dig into this course that I wanted to make sure both of my boys had access so I paid for the course for my 2nd son Ezra.  That means both he and Noah, age 10, have been using the course for several weeks. We used this program 3-4 times per week.

Veritas Press self-paced classes center on the Classical Christian model to education.  The Bible is taught in order and children are encouraged to memorize all of the key events of the Bible in order.  To help that process a long the children learn a catchy song bit by bit.  I’m always amazed at just how much my children really remember and take away from each of the Vertias Press courses they’ve taken.

Veritas Press Self-Paced Bible is a web based interactive course designed for grades 2-6. The programs are work on most devices with an Internet connection including iPad and Android tablets.

The Old Testament 1 course includes 128 lesson which includes 32 events from the Bible.  Lessons are usually pretty quick. My boys are finished within 10-20 minutes.  Each of the Self-Paced Bible courses are present by actors who play the role of teachers of historic times, and a mascot.  The mascot in Old Testament 1 is a cat.

After information is presented by the teachers/actors the children usually have a variety of activities such as games and quizzes. Multimedia such as maps and timelines help children interact with and understand the material All grading is done automatically and children get instant feedback.  Reviews and tests are done in a multiple choice question format.  If something isn’t done right they have to complete the questions again.

If you are new to Veritas Press you’ll need to create a parent account as well as your student’s account.  The parent account lets you follow along with your student’s progress and keep tabs on how they are doing.  It is easy to use and very handy, especially if you have multiple children using Vertias Press Self-Paced Courses.

The program is very open and go.  While I enjoy watching the lessons and tossing in my own discussions as the children proceed it really isn’t necessary.  Most students can complete this course completely on their own.

Overall 

We adore this program as much as all of the other self-paced courses.  My boys already have a pretty good working knowledge of the Old Testament so as result they aren’t finding this program as challenging as other Veritas Press courses they’ve done.  That means they are enjoying it all the more.  And this momma doesn’t think you can every learn enough about God’s word.  I’m sure they are making connections they’ve never made before.  We will be moving on to the other Bible Courses in due time.
