Digital Educational Resources

Thank you to Capital Area Council and Great Alabama Council for these great resources for families looking to engage their children in Scouting and/or educational activities while at home!

Especially good for math and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it’s mostly common material.
Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).
Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.
Learn computer programming skills – fun and free.
Creative computer programming.
All sorts of engaging educational videos.
Activities and quizzes for younger kids.
