IT Trainers' TechHub

The IT Training team’s training website for OPS teachers and staff continues to be developed with the addition of a social networking component allowing teachers and staff a safe environment to share online communications. The training site: http://techhub.ops.org/ continues to increase the number of instructional technology videos produced by the trainers. Popular video topics have included the new student information system, Infinite Campus, SMART Board, DotNetNuke Web Page Software, the FirstClass E-Mail system, Microsoft Office for both Windows and Macs, Apple’s iLife Series, and much more. In the first year of existence, TechHub pages have been visited 181,318 times for an average of 15,110 a month. Those numbers have steadily increased during the school year, and “hits” have been from all over the world, though the heaviest concentration is from Omaha Public Schools personnel.
