The HEV Project is a site designed my homeschool parents for homeschool families. It is filled with short videos on all kinds of topics. The videos are intended to teach, minimize screen time (which is why they are short), and master the content using lesson activities after the video.
From the website:
The videos and activities help answer questions like: How do crystals form? How did a country allow Hitler to come to power? How do you make sourdough breads? How do you physically defend yourself from an attacker? What are other homeschooling kids doing with their life? How is Jesus like our own personal coach? How do you play the guitar? What is the Constitution? How do you play chess?
All of this and many, many other concepts are covered in the videos on this site. Each one of them is edifying and strengthening to a student’s heart, mind and soul… and taught by an adult who loves that subject!
On their “What is HEV all about” page, you can get more info on what you will find on their site as well as the motivation behind the project.
Now, here’s something new…they allow you to pick your price! This is how much they care about reaching as many families as they can! They truly want families to be able to afford to use the site (while still being able to keep the site up and running, too). Oh, and your payment per month includes all members of your family. No more breaking the bank so that every child can use the site!
AND, you can try it out for free for a week first!
There are so many video lessons on the HEV site! It can be a bit overwhelming, really. However, if you just take it one day at a time and don’t put pressure on yourself to watch certain things on certain days, it will be fine (that sentence was really just for me). Your child can learn how to play guitar or chess, learn about art, math, cursive and so much more!
Scroll down to the bottom of the main HEV Project page, and you will find samples of videos so you can get an idea what you will be paying for when you get your subscription.
I briefly mentioned it before, but this site is not just another video site where your child gets buried in screen time. All the videos are short to limit screen time. Then after each lesson, there are activities to reinforce what was in the video so that your child can Master it!
Click on the picture below and you can view a sample project and the Master It! activity sheet that goes with that lesson.
Anyway, if you can’t tell, I think this site is pretty clever. I do hope you check it out and maybe even do the free trial so you can see what it’s all about.
There are over 300 videos in 9 different categories to choose from and they are always adding more, so you are sure to never be bored with the site.
Please tell me in the comments if you have ever used this site and how you enjoy it.
