IU High School provides a number of tutorials to help students:
Genius Tutorial
Independent Course Tutorial
Cooperataive Course Tutorial

IU High School also provides a Help Portal with links to additional information.

The main difference between these two types of courses is that in Cooperative courses students have the opportunity to interact and engage with their fellow students, to create a cooperative learning environment.

For Independent courses, interaction is limited to only that between student and teacher. Independent courses all share the same general structure of a series of Lessons. The majority of IU High School courses are Independent.

Cooperative courses are generally organized around Modules instead of Lessons, and are not restricted to one particular structural format.

More information about both types of course formats is available here.
