    Curriculum

    How do students learn at QDA?

    An introduction to QDA's online learning environment:

    QDA uses an asynchronous learning model that allows students the freedom to learn from anywhere. While students are required to meet attendance requirements, there are no designated class times so students can create their own schedule. Each course has been developed so students can learn at their own pace and show mastery for each topic. This approach allows students, their parents/guardians, and teachers to closely monitor progress and to ensure that the core course material is being mastered. To accommodate for various learning styles, each course has been developed to ensure lessons use a combination of text, audio, video, and hands on experience. 

    QDA combines our local Ohio certified educators with the nation's leading online curriculum designers to give students access to a large library of online courses. Listed below are our curriculum platforms that most students use while enrolled at QDA. However, QDA is also able to offer students the option to participate in the following programs:

    • College Credit Plus - take some or all of your courses at a local university.
    • Vocational Programs - attend a local vocational school to learn a trade and take your core subjects at QDA.
    • AP Courses

    The core of the Odysseyware® online learning program is a robust course library of standards-aligned, dynamic and pedagogically sound curriculum. The curriculum is designed to empower students to build proficiency, achieve content mastery, and engage in rich and challenging real world applications.

    The curriculum is intentionally designed to be flexible in meeting the needs of all learners including struggling students, students in special education, English Language Learners, and students needing remediation or enrichment.

    Embedded formative and summative assessments, scaffolded supports, and a balance of instructionally appropriate text and media elements, such as video, provide students with multimodal instruction to address diverse learning styles. Each video also includes a transcript that can be translated into 23 different languages.

    The Odysseyware lesson design fosters ongoing collaboration between learners and teachers, enabling students to progress and practice at their own pace and receive support and guided instruction as needed. Teachers can also customize content to address specific learning goals and adjust instruction based on real-time reports that show how students are progressing through the material.

    Engaging Multimedia Elements

    The Odysseyware software uses engaging multimedia to support student learning across content areas. Direct instruction videos are 2-5 minutes in length, and students have the control to fast-forward, rewind, pause, and replay as many times as they want.
