Odysseyware online learning platform

Sometimes we avoid new things, like online public school, because we don’t know what to expect, and that can make us a little nervous. It’s totally natural.

To help, I’ve created this video that shows you what it's like to work in ICON’s online education platform.

Video Length: < 7 minutes

Getting Started

  1. Create an account
  2. Watch the tutorial video
  3. Click on the "Learn" tab to see your assignments and courses

Types of Assignments

  1. Lessons (Blue)
  2. Projects (Green)
  3. Quizzes (Orange)
  4. Tests (Red)


Each lesson begins with an explanation, and may also include vocabulary, imagery, games to interact with, and more. You’ll want to read all the content before answering the questions at the end.


Projects generally take a little longer than the lessons, so it’s best to plan these for when you have a bit more time.

You are expected to do work each school day, but there is no specific time it has to be done.

Message Feature

You can talk to your instructor and ask questions directly in the course platform.

Pro-tip: While you may school any time of the day, you might want to work on subjects that you need a little extra help with during the times when the instructor is available.

But How Flexible is Online School, Really?

Want a better idea of just how you can work online school into your life? Watch this 8-minute video about how you can break up your school schedule, and make sure your education fits your lifestyle and needs.
