Odysseyware Integration App

After several months of work, we now have a working integration app with Odysseyware using their available API. You can check it out in our App Store:

This particular integration app works differently from our other LMS integration implementations (like Schoology and Canvas). For Schoology and Canvas, QuickSchools is treated as the source for all Roster elements, like students, teachers, sections and even section enrollments. Only grades are pulled from the LMS into the QuickSchools Gradebook. However, since Odysseyware is also a Curriculum Management System, we treat Odysseyware as the source for courses and section enrollments too. So after mapping students, teachers and sections from QuickSchools, we will pull both section enrollments as well as grades from Odysseyware into QuickSchools. So what does that all mean?

In summary, once the app is installed and linked, the flow of data is as follows:

  • Use QuickSchools to map specific roster data between QuickSchools and Odysseyware (Steps 1 thru 5 from manual). This includes students, teachers, academic terms (or grading periods) and grading categories. Courses are a special case.
  • Identify and map specific sections in QuickSchools to be linked with courses in Odysseyware (Step 4 in manual). You do not need to enroll students into sections in QuickSchools.
  • Use Odysseyware by enrolling students into courses, and adding grades to the Odysseyware Gradebook.
  • Schedule or manually synchronize sections from Odysseyware into QuickSchools (Step 6 in manual).

Please note that in order to use this app, you will need to obtain and activate your API KEY from Odysseyware. This may incur an additional cost from Odysseyware.
