Customization at scale
The ability to differentiate the learning experience for each student is a foundational principle of the Odysseyware® instructional design. Teachers and administrators can easily customize course content and instructional sequence to align with state, district, or school scope and sequence design, fill gaps, expand learning opportunities, and address individual learning needs. Customization options include:
Alignment to Scope and Sequence
With the drag-and-drop course customization feature, educators can adjust the instructional sequence of any course as well as resequence or delete individual lessons, projects, or quizzes that are contained in each unit.
Cross-Curricular Learning Opportunities
Content from our over 80 CTE courses–and other foundational or college and career prep content–can be incorporated into any course to help:
- Reinforce concepts
- Provide additional engagement with interesting content
- Accelerate learning and key college and career prep skill development
- Integrate real world learning experiences
Individual lessons and projects, as well as entire units, are searchable by topic or standards and can be easily inserted into the new custom course.
Teacher Authoring Tool
Educators can insert teacher- or district-created lessons, activities, projects, and quizzes to enhance existing Odysseyware courses or create entirely new custom courses. Featuring a drag-and-drop functionality, the Authoring Tool allows educators to embed a rich variety of content into lessons such as videos, animations, text, and learning games and activities.
Prescriptive Learning PathsWhen Odysseyware curriculum is used in Credit Recovery (CRx) Mode, students are assigned a pre-test at the beginning of each unit to determine if they are already competent in concepts addressed in the unit. If the student achieves a score at or above the predetermined CRx Pass Threshold, the program automatically skips the rest of the unit and the student takes the pretest for the following unit. If not, the system assigns the lessons within the unit to the student. Flex CRx Mode enables teachers to further customize these learning paths, adding, removing, and/or resequencing content as described above.
Flex CRx Mode
When a course has Flex Assessments, tests and quizzes automatically adjust to match any changes to the lesson sequence, prescriptive learning path, and content of a custom course or lesson, so educators know students are always getting relevant and appropriate test questions.
The fact that Odysseyware has such robust customization features enables us to use the program in a large variety of ways.
