I CAN Learn Education Systems has three products, which together span a traditional grades 4-9 Mathematics curriculum from Arithmetic through Algebra I. "I CAN Learn" stands for Interactive Computer Aided Natural Learning. The programs are divided into 120-180 lessons across 16-20 lessons (depening on the program). Each lesson has 4 parts which appear in sequence; these are:

- 1 or 2 Warm-up problems (multiple-choice)
- Lesson Presentation (videos w/ user interaction)
- Tutorial Problems
- Quiz (more test questions)

I CAN Learn distinguishes itself from other competitors by introducing new concepts very thoroughly. The videos feature a character in a real-world situation (although often very contrived) such as the cook who introduces ideas of fractions and proportions, or the skateboard shop owner who introduces data and graphing problems. One weakness of the software is that the student interaction relies heavily on answering multiple-choice questions.

Another unique aspect of I CAN Learn is that it encourages students to copy what they are learning in their off-line notebooks (i.e. notebooks made of paper). For example, during a lesson presentation about graphing functions, I CAN Learn tells the student at several points in the video to "copy down the information in [their] notebook" before continuing. Although it is obviously hard for the computer to determine if the student is actually copying down material, for the students who actually do this, it undoubtedly reinforces the content for them in a helpful way.
