Is anyone using or planning to use OLLY as their planner/record keeper?


Recommended Posts

I am really interested in this program and think I will use it, but I wasn't able to find a lot of first hand information on it since it is so new. I have a Mac and want a stand alone single program to do any lesson planning/record keeping I want to do. Do any of you use it or plan to use it? What do you like or don't like about it? Any tips for using it successfully?


This will be my first year homeschooling my son in kindergarten. (My daughter will be starting preschool.). I am a former elementary teacher. I will be using apologia science, tapestry of grace, everyday math, and teach America to read and spell (TATRAS). I included this information about myself in case it makes a difference in your recommendation or tips about OLLY as a planner. (:

I don't use any of those programs, but I have been using Olly for a while now, after giving up on some other popular planners, and I love it. I also love the responsiveness of the developer to suggestions and problems.


The drag and drop works well, it s easy to set up categories of information such as resources by drag and drop for easier access, rescheduling is easy, making backups is a snap, attendance is simple, lesson plans can be reused at will without messing with anything, auto-generating multiple assignments works well, and there are no complicated steps to learn-- I can just do my planning and get back to my life, instead of spending my life learning my planner.
