We’ve prepared a short tour for you to help you get into action and begin to use the site.
Click on the HTML/YPC button above to "Get Started" with the HTML 101 course (adding students, accessing the cheat sheet, and taking the class tour.)
You can explore some cool stuff.
As you’ll see when you move to the next step on the tour, when you add resources that you like and use, not only are you potentially helping introduce other parent-educators to valuable resources, but you are creating your personalized selection of ‘My Resources’.
You’ll be able to use these resources in creating and sharing Subject Plans and, more importantly, integrating these resources into our Teaching Planner (coming in August) where you’ll be able to manage ALL of your online (and off-line) resources and activities in one place!
The Subject Plans are a way for Parent-Educators to share their answer to the BIG question that Homeschooling parents ask, “So, how are you teaching ____?”.

We are busily working on the core teaching tool of the O'Leary Academy site, the functionality that brings our slogan “The Resources You Choose, the Freedom You Want, and the Tools You Need” to life – the Term Planner/Teaching Dashboard.
Take a sneak peek at what you (and your students) will be able to do with this tool and learn how you can help shape and test the Dashboard as part of our focus group.
The O'Leary Academy site gets better as more parent-educators connect, comment, and contribute. You can even create your own mini-community of trusted parent-educators.
Click the button below to get your personalized link and suggested text (for an email or posting to your group) to share. You can even choose to get notified when people you invite register and join (so that you can add them to your Circle of trusted members).
Have your kids watch the interactive map to see markers pop up around your state, the country, and even the world as you see the impact of your willingness to share resources with other parent-educators.
